Thomas Ruff: d.o.pe.

Referencing Aldous Huxley’s 1954 book The Doors of Perception, Ruff’s d.o.pe. series features fractal patterns the artist creates with a specialized software program that are printed onto industrial carpets. These works are part of Ruff’s ongoing pursuit of the visual expression of the beauty of mathematics, and recall his own formative experiences as a teenager in the Black Forest. They also extend Ruff’s exploration of human perception and his interest in creating digital imagery that appears at once natural and artificial, ultimately foregrounding the pure pleasures of visuality and of looking.
