En plein air

Silva's "En plein air" is an ultimately logical endeavor considering the artist's mariage of natural and technological material and imagery in his practice. Here Silva is producing computer based works on location – in the open air – in the tradition of the impressionists. We are offered a prolific output of images offering a glimpse at the artist's perspective as communicated through the manipulation of software. In many ways the animated gifs and still images produced by Silva are documentation – an attempt to capture and digitize nature.
