Artist statement

In the cross-section of mathematics and fine arts, an inclination towards chaos theory has been discovered. The word chaos in mathematics means two objects that follow a similar path will eventually separate. Unlike randomness, which has no obvious structure, chaos reveals certain behaviours and patterns. By using computational methods, the trajectories of these motions are displayed using stencil and spray paint on canvas with wooden laser cut outs creating a hemisphere which reveals that the chaos can be contained.
