Werner Sun, a visual artist based in Ithaca, NY, merges his background in physics with his artistic pursuits. Employing repetitive manual processes, Sun meticulously transforms digital images into sculptural objects that reflect the gradual accumulation of scientific knowledge. He begins by taking photographs and manipulating them to create scrambled images characterized by a blend of pattern and complexity. Sun’s interest in algorithmic transformations is deeply rooted in his experience as a physicist utilizing computers for data analysis. However, in his artistic practice, he diverges by executing visual algorithms manually, employing paper engineering techniques and geometric mark-making. Through this hands-on approach, Sun’s altered prints become visual representations of his ongoing engagement with information, serving as both artifacts of analysis and interpretation. They afford him the opportunity to delve into the perplexing interplay between the reductionism inherent in broad concepts and the individual nuances of personal experiences.
