Oscar Cass-Darweish

Artist working in the areas of web design, sound design, motion graphics, 3D modelling, video editing and simple programming languages. My art practice takes into consideration that hardware and software enable crossover and appropriation between processes belonging to these disciplines, with the potential to affect modes of perception. Conversations around virtuality and the real in relation to the dual identity of the digital image in terms of code/representation are reflected upon to arrive at methods of constructing experiences that highlight these positions and reveal logics behind the technology being used. Recent work and research has focused on the relationship of sensory phenomena such as synaesthesia to this process. This has led to involvement in projects in different roles that consider new spaces for artworks and the materiality of the digital through the application of artistic methods and discourse.
