"I am trying to catch those moments when the slow internet connection reduces the images looked up in the search engine to homogeneous colour fields. The screen becomes a composition of “colour fields” without motifs and formal associations. This effect, which is defined as an error, is what I painted on canvas. In this way, I visualize basic concepts. During the browsing, I have become aware that each word has specific colour scheme. Hereby, this searching method is transformed into a kind of research"
