The Art of Iteration

Iterative process, especially in the case of my project, is highly important for an artist to experiment with new ideas and concepts in a manner which is rapid, affordable and valuable.

Drawing on the notion of “abstraction intoContinue reading “Evolution of Ideas: Final Project”
