Haudressy “cracks” computers to produce new pictorial material, both chaotic and organized. He introduces glitches and bugs that create uncontrolled changes to the image. Alterations, transformations, distortions: the computer has to keep recalculating the coordinates for each point or pixel. Caught in an endless iterative process, the drawing no longer has a static structure, but is instead shapes in the making. In the most literal sense of the term, the movement is “breathed” into the representation.

The pieces presented are part of the series entitled Tableaux that draws inspiration from a set of emblematic works in the history of western and eastern painting.
