More than in her earlier videos, in flowLia works with nearly ornamental forms that run riot over the screen to the sound created by Vitor Joaquim. The basic elements, as always, are extremely delicate graphic figures. At first they seem like microbiological particles with Art Deco or Jugendstil buds and calyxes sprouting from them, which are then covered by a dense mesh resembling bamboo later. Its aesthetic character apparently refers to minimalistic art from the Far East. (Gerald Weber)
The Austrian artist Lia – one of the early pioneers of Software and Net Art – has been creating digital art, installations and sound works since 1995. Her Internet works combine various traditions of drawing and painting with the aesthetic of digital images and algorithms. They are characterized by a minimalist quality, and by an affinity with conceptual art.
