The Polish visual artist Dominik Lejman (b. 1969) studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk and later at the Royal College of Art in London. He develops a technique to fuse video projections with abstract paintings on canvas, creating a hybrid art form that both interrupts and repeats the moving image. His work questions the principles according to which the human brain assembles images. Through the projection in the abstract structure of the canvas, a technological trompe l'oeil is created.
