In April 2019, I collaborated with a contemporary digital artist Rinatto as known as L-Bank.

I want to draw the viewers’s attention to the difference between the perception of our image editing approaches: analog and digital one. I used the triangular prisms in creating of neon portraits. This's an analog technique. And after that, Rinatto simulated water texture through multi-faceted prisms in digital space.
In both cases there are striking similarities and differences, the both of us consider the refraction of light but in different spaces.
Photographs, obtained through physical triangular prisms, are the basis of our work. They reproduce additional visual properties of objects and surfaces, textures.
Then we simulated water texture through multi-faceted prisms & tried to make the dispersion effect and the effect of the light reflection better using modern instruments in digital space.
The comparison between our techniques (analog and digital ones) induces dualism based on the view/concept that photographs consist of these methods which co-exist together.
Whether they compliment each other like the yin and yang or they are the conflict between good and evil -- it’s the moment everyone can choose.
Each viewer can see how difficult all the details of this TRIPTYCH “DĪSPĘRSĪØN (øptics)” are, the non-trivial structure on all given scales and the randomness of visual patterns.
