Beyond is 3 scenes an interactive art work. In Beyond series, Dessens presents three captivating scenes, Blossom, Forest, The sea, inspired by diversity, vitality and wilderness of the enchanting Mediterranean landscape and the memorial of “Passages” in Portbou dedicated to Walter Benjamin who was one of the most prominent philosophers and an inspiring flaneur of the 20th century. Inspired by the Mediterranean landscape based on his childhood memories in the coastal Catalan town, Portbou, David Dessens starts his Beyond series by using digital means of generative art. One of the most nuanced and innovative genres in digital art, generative art allows the artist to utilize controlled randomness as part of his creative process. Dessens works with patterns of nature by using algorithms that make each artwork unique. Every element created by generative art randomly and slightly changes and thus every time a new scene awaits with subtle variations hidden in detail. In so doing, Dessens reminds us of the inevitability of change echoing the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus’ famous words, “You cannot step into the same river twice, for other waters are continually flowing on.”
