Art: Duality by Artist Guy David
As a digital artist and an electronic musician, the computer is my working tool. It's my canvas, my brush, my color pallet as well as my keyboard and orchestra. In reality, a computer is nothing but a sophisticated calculator. It actually understands only two thing - the digit "0" and the digit "1". I find this duality fascinating, this Neanderthal thinker with his two digits as a tool for creating unlimited virtual worlds of art and music. In this piece, I depict the computer as a rough stone, some stone-age relic, while his screen is displaying a montage of some notes from my music and video art of an actual work I created called "Thorn".

I sculptured the model of the computer using the Wings3d software and imported it into Bryce, where I added the materials for both keyboard and screen frame of the computer. The background was created using a single Symmetrical Lattice, a Water Plane and the Sky controls. The notes where taken from screen captures of Reason, the software I use to create music. I edited the screen captures of the notes using Photoshop Elements and added the screen capture of the video art, then I imported the screen capture into the screen of the computer in Bryce and rendered the work.
