Pascal Dombis lives and works in Paris. He earned an Engineering degree from the Insa University in Lyon. In 1987, he spent one year at Tufts University where he attended computer art classes at Boston Museum School. This is where he began to use computers and algorithms in his art. Dombis is known for his excessive use of simple algorithmic rules. When rules are input in an excessive process, new and unpredictable forms come to the fore and generate the unlikely. He initially worked with simplistic rules: drawing a Straightline. But then he used Digital tools to reach the wildest results possible. Visual forms appear (they are not intentionally programmed) out of the excessive enforcement of autonomous and simple rules (Algorithyms). So he doesn't consciously conceive a form in advance. He lays down simple rules and lets them go through a series of interactions. Through this use of technological processes, "He tries to confront the human viewer with 'his/her' own forms of primitive irrationality." I love the way he has no form invisioned prior to the start of each project.
At the end of year 2015, Pascal Dombis, in collaboration with Gil Percal, installed in Perth, Australia, Irrational Geometrics, an monumental installation of digitally printed glass and LED lighting.
