With a strong emphasis in using unpredictability and chance in his work, Borowik explores the aleatoric mark-making qualities of the machines through automation and mediation. Currently, he controls the machines to draw straight lines and create abstract Expanding Squares and deconstruct landscapes and cityscapes.
Both machines and drawing will be on display.
Damien Borowik’s work has been exhibited worldwide including Europe, the United States, South America and Japan. He has taken part in the latest Kinetica Art Fair in London, was invited to show his work at the major exhibition Creative Machine at Goldsmiths, University of London which also features in a BBC program. His moving image work screened in over 35 festivals worldwide including Annecy Animation Festival, TEIAF, Ankara and was also screened at the Pixar Animations Studios and broadcasted on Arte and TVE.
He graduated with honours from Central Saint Martins and completed his Masters studies in Computational Arts at Goldsmiths.
Using technology as well as more traditional medium, Damien Borowik intentionally includes unpredictability and chance in both digital and analog processes during the act of creation.
