The Swan

Brendan Dawes' newest series is a continuation of the technique and style he introduced with the Lumen prize awarded Black Mamba’s Revenge, which pairs pixel sampling techniques and AI to reimagine and condense multiple scenes into a united sculptural form . This time, Natalia Makarova’s 1905 ballet performance of The Dying Swan serve as inspiration and the foundation of this creation in which “time and motion give rise to a flowing sculptural form, creating a physical manifestation of not only the performance itself but of the imperfect yet human and beautiful nature of memories.”
