Blue Ocean is a composition that first brings to mind a physical reality. The texture of the paint, thick and fluid, gives it an utmost tactile feel. But the work is intangible. Gordon Berger conceives abstract art pieces through the use of blockchain technology. Each stroke is drawn on a tablet and uploaded onto the digital ledger. An algorithm then picks various brush strokes from different times and creates a unique composition at a given moment. In this piece, the result is an aspiring visual of deep marine and lighter blues. The artwork binds together machine and man creation and provides the viewer with a new understanding of materiality.
