LIFE INSIDE A PIXEL
‘Life inside a pixel’ has its origins in Dadara’s Solipmission Installation at Burning Man, where he was locked up 24/7 inside a big black box under the hot desert sun. It was probably Dadara’s most intense experience ever: a Solipmission Impossible.
After returning to Amsterdam Reality Dadara crashed, closed the curtains, and did not open them for an entire week and started to paint... boxes.
Small ones. Big ones. Sometimes filled with colorful, surreal lifeforms. Sometimes filled with people, often naked and vulnerable. Grey totalitarian box worlds with no escape.
The sparkling, geometrical works that are the result of his process of returning to everyday reality give an insight into life within a pixel. And each and every one of them shows that Dadara's vision can’t be limited by reality.
