Get out of the path is another project in which I examine the flexibility of the meaning of the concept of norm and normativity, as well as the power of authority of socially binding rules that push people to act, look, speak or think in a certain way. The leitmotiv of this series are the laws that rule contemporary design – abstract forms that are drawn from the world of objects, which become repetitive solutions used when designing objects of everyday use around us. In the context of the maniacal duplication of patterns of visual culture, the title of this series refers to the replacement of the artist’s mythical gesture with a ‘path’ (a term used in Adobe Illustrator) tread in the graphic design, along which the cutting-head of a robot cuts out compositions.
