Various Outputs: The Art Portfolio of Krasimira Dimtchevska
Krasimira Dimtchevska, also known as Krasi Dimtch, is a digital artist who uses language as a basis for the production of abstract images, text, and sound. The artist's practice has led to the creation of patented software that transforms language into various outputs.
I really like the overall aesthetic of Krasi's art practice. The images in her visual art series appear at first to be highly detailed landscapes or renderings of complex objects. On closer inspection, however, the viewer realizes that these are in fact dense arrangements of minute abstract details, images built up out of distinct elements that suggest meaning in their uniqueness and repetition, but that are otherwise alien.
The artist has produced two books of text art based on the same software that recognizes patterns of language and produces images. It's fascinating to see how software algorithms distort and remix recognizable language into something with a whole new set of meanings.
