The Unfolded Collection features three computer-generated artworks: The Lonely One in the Autumn (with a soundtrack composed by @c), Inside the Diamond and Not Even Love Will Tear Us Apart, which were performed by LIA in real-time and recorded exclusively for Sedition as high-definition videos.
This series explores the possibilities of communicating concepts like love, poetry and time through the language of code and computer aesthetics. Through their evolving forms, shapes, movements, colours and textures, the artworks unfold abstract environments and crystalline structures creating a unique sense of exploration of the artist’s vision.
