Enclosed rhyme
VR animacija, 2018.

“The enclosed rhyme scheme, exemplified by the first stanza of a (Petrarchan) sonnet, is here used to portray the four stages of a long term relationship, in a series of four paintings. Primarily created as a polyptych of four images, with its format it creates a rhythm of a,b,b,a and thereby alluding to the old school option of sharing a personal emotional spasm with  the public  –  sonnet.”

The second  part of the work  was  created at the VR  inc  residence where  the author, in  collaboration with animator Filip Ugrin transferred images into virtual reality.
