About the project

"As an artist, I am deeply and constantly inspired and obsessed by the classic square tile Damier and Louis Vuitton monogram. But also fascinated with the variation over the colour in pattern and each element's graphic from the pattern: the Circle, the Diamond and the Cross. Since all those elements are also very fundamental, I re-used them to create the generative art in the past, feeling a historical link between himself and Louis Vuitton. So for this, I pitched three questions: What if the shapes of elements can dynamically morph between each other? What if the pattern can evolve? What does the pattern looks like for the LV vessel in the future? In order to answer this, I created this artwork 'Gradual Pattern'."
