Temporal Fragments

The work explores the fragmented experience of time and the interplay between visual representation and identity. Drawing inspiration from the rich history of classical Islamic art and its mathematical foundations, the artist employs Islamic geometric patterns to highlight the connection between historical artistic principles and media art. Using visual techniques such as fragmented imagery, glitch aesthetics, and abstract forms, the work visualises the multidimensional nature of time in the digital age. Additionally, by referring how contemporary images arise from non-visual data, such as code or text, through specific algorithms, the artist tries to blur the boundaries between the visual and the abstract. Through the interplay of visual techniques and historical inspirations, the work invites viewers to contemplate complexities of our digitally influenced temporal experiences and how they shape our understanding of self and identity in the contemporary world.
