Dimitry Saïd Chamy
“I draw one glyph at a time on my tablet. Each is a world, a moment, a part of speech. That’s how it starts. I am building the vocabulary for a visual system driven by design, code, and chance. I imagine these motifs, patterns, and characters are destined for some unwritten play. They will be combined, animated, transformed, adapted and repurposed by others. For now, the line flows. Words and time stop. Drawing is my meditation.”
