About the artwork

“The project Computer Viruses by Stepan Ryabchenko is working with relevant issues for the 21st century, the ratio of the real and the virtual, exploring the specificity of their perception by the human mind. In today’s world, a computer virus is virtually a social unit, each of them has its own history and peculiar interaction with the system. Based on these facts, Stepan Ryabchenko renders the virtual nature of the virus, giving it a shape and an image. Thus, the limit between the figurative and the abstract is overcome, the viewer’s attention is transferred to the external image, the focus shifts from the sense of threat in the direction of aesthetic perception”.
