Re-coding Cities is a visual art and urban design project; it re-interprets the city using photographic and tech-digital methods, experimenting with a mix of analogue and printing art techniques. The artist aims to create a contemporary and 're-coded' vision of urban areas, both the new and the old, that are part of daily life.
As an ongoing and evolving project, Re-coding Cities has been developed in various cities (including: London, Paris, Rome, Chicago, Moscow, Edinburgh and Hamburg) The project started as part of the artist practice collaborating with the Tate; it also relates to his lecturer role and creative research practice at the University of the Arts London. The main method of creation is based on an exploration of digital photography which is developed into digital negatives. These negatives are processed with alternative analogue printing techniques, additionally processed and scanned, and then the design is glitched. This final layered image is printed onto cartridge or watercolour paper.
Within a multidisciplinary angle, Re-coding Cities brings together aspects of photography, technology, art and graphic design. This is an evolving series and just a few pieces are shown here.
