J. D. Doria, an interdisciplinary artist, works and lives in Tel Aviv and has exhibited his works internationally in Tel Aviv, Rome, Milan, London, Paris and Chicago among others. His work explores through the transforming dynamics of materiality the questions he deems fundamental in a human becoming, and matures at the intersections between art and technology, and between art and science. His background in cinema allows him to capture unexpected and transitory qualities in his works, which stem out from the act of painting, yet evolve through technology and photography into generative art. Among his exhibited projects, Painting as a multitude, Organic Memory and the Petri Dish Project.
In his last project – the Petri Dish, rather than painting he is “growing” images by the agency of materials (colors and mediums). The composition in the Petri dish becomes active and generates chaotic processes, out of which a ‘colony’ of images emerges. This is where the camera and the close collaboration with the photographer Shaw Raz enter the scene and capture the dynamics in time. Images are then digitally enlarged and grown and enter a process of selection and articulation. Each ‘work’ is then presented as the circular Petri dish image of the particular “culture” articulated by the ‘multitude’ of images extracted along the process in a fractal like perception of scales and timings.
I make websites and do other cool things.
