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.
