Hidden Variables (HV) is designed to be a labyrinth with forking paths for free drifting. You encounter images murmuring and flickering, but you are in fact face to face with technology. HV showcases a scholar with a cinema studies background investigating possibilities in cinema with mathematical and computational algorithmic analysis and invention, the exhibition features artworks by the artist from 2011 to his most recent experiments, varying from single-channel videos, multiple projections, digital prints, animating moving images to audio-visual and textual documentation on processes of research and experimentation. Works are secretly clustered and connected. The same mathematics theory can derive works with different perceptual and physical presence while the same work can also have distinct representation. Visitors therefore should wander between works with curiosity in order to reveal the unseen relations, or, start in the research/reading room to make clear the whole experimentation. The design of forking paths reactivates the desire of seeing. To the passionate viewers, the key is no more than near at hand.
