Refraction
The idea for Refraction came from trying to push my interest in technology down a very different route. Where once repeated lines echoed the scanlines of a CRT Television, I was trying to explore the simple overlapping of lines, colour and composition in a distorted pattern that helps to break away from a regular repeat.
