Elout De Kok
Dutch artist Elout De Kok creates generative and interactive works that dialogue with the styles of major 20th century art movements such as the Bauhaus, de Stijl, Constructivism and Abstract Expressionism. The work Zabnulvier v.08 (2004) is activated by the viewer, who may compose and disassemble the image into any one of a number of "painterly styles." The mouse's movement activates an energetic flow of forms and colors that seem to erupt and pour onto the screen. De Kok describes his works as an encounter of sorts between 1920s Constructivism and contemporary "digital architecture."
