With a background in Mechanical Engineering and Architecture, Robert is interested in how the artistic and the technical may inform and invigorate each other, producing output that is new and different to both. In his work individual colours are defined as ‘genetic sequences’, realized digitally as a string of 1s and 0s. Over sized pixels, rastered onto the image plane, are used to record these colours as they are created.
The work is arranged into series, each investigating a different combination of techniques, rendered for effect. They are titled by their ‘Unix timestamp’ – the exact time of creation recorded as the number of milliseconds since 00:00:00 UTC 1st January 1970.
