APOSEMATICA (series) 2013-2016
This series is the result of a philosophical investigation through painting. Working with transparent support gave me an understanding of the idea of the dialectical consciousness and consequently an interest in the philosophy of becoming. https://myvanwygibson.com/whoistheartist
Some of the framed plexiglass works were combined with panels of color. These panels were created using sensing technology that converts colors into code for printing. https://myvanwygibson.com/machinestranslatenature
Aposematic is term coined for the concept of warning coloration in nature (apo - away sema - sign).
