Brendan Dawes uses cutting-edge generative methods and data to visualise forms of everyday life that he transforms into complex mathematical configurations. The UK-based artist draws much of his inspiration from popular culture and nature, often revolving his work around the concept of time and memory. These analytical explorations into our relationship with time and space have been an ongoing theme in Dawes's work as he continues to question our understanding of the surrounding world.
I think that's the correlation of all my other work I have done...What people say to me, is that there is a bit of humanness in [my artworks]. But I don't press SHIFT + F12 to make it more human. That's what comes out—I don't know any other way to do it.
