‘It’s Complex’

Digital print on canvas

1200mm x 800mm




“It’s Complex” is a spatialisation of the micro-timing and dynamics of eight improvised drum beats as liquid polyrhythm. The print illustrates, through the translation of music into spatial forms, the hidden complexities of drumming as an unique art form.


How does your work engage with the theme ‘The World at Home’?

In the many months spent in iso, I have spent hours playing drums. These drum improvisations were recorded and transformed into the liquid polyrhythm forms as a reflection of the diversity of playing that happens when alone in the studio.
