REAS-xUT-000840-Seed-1147-2-4096px.png is a still composition that presents an ensemble of rectangles of different scales. The layering of shapes creates a matrix of interwoven elements. The result is a hypnotic work, binding nuances of blues and reds with khaki and beige undertones. In his art, Casey Reas combines visual and algorithmic delight. The artist investigates the aesthetics that can emerge from computational, open-end processes. At each step of the creation, elements of the image follow different behaviours, modifying their relationship with other pictorial plane components. In the end, the mesmerising visual is only the surface of a work that withholds many layers of code as an immaterial form of beauty.
