Eyal Gever is a contemporary artist whose work sits at the fusion of art and technology. Using just a palette of code, he develops life-like digital simulations of moments in time -- often dramatic or catastrophic in nature -- from which he fabricates 3D-printed sculptures and installations. Few artists possess Gever’s deep knowledge and passion for all things digital. The advantage, he says, is that he’s not overwhelmed by the power of technology for its own sake. “I’ve simply used the latest technology to develop a new language for my art.” And Gever’s artistic language is constantly evolving. In 2015 his sculptures were exhibited as part of a Turner retrospective at the Rijksmuseum Twenthe alongside Gerard Richter and JMW Turner and he created Waterdancer, a “3D liquid simulation” featuring a dancer whose body appears to be made of water, which disperses as she moves.
