KRASI DIMTCH = Krasimira Dimtchevska + Language-based Art

Krasi Dimtch: Every Letter is a Sound... Every Word is an Image
31 August- 16 September
Gallery Luz- Belgo, Montreal, Canada


My latest solo exhibition focuses on the development and use of atypical means for representing the symbols of Language through digital, conceptual, and sound art.

‘Every letter is a sound... every word is an image’ features language-based artworks that can be read, heard, or looked upon, all of them differently representing the linguistic contents of hopes, fears, and disbeliefs about art, death, and the meaning of life.
Highlights of the exhibition include ‘Death-free universes… points of entry’ which is presented in the form of a poetry book, illustrating how the thesaurus-like organized structure of the English language can be used to formulate poetic thoughts. The book documents the transformations of sequences of interrelated English synonyms into poems. The sounds work ‘Every letter is a sound’ demonstrates how thoughts that have been put in words can be transformed into sequences of non-speech sounds and experienced as musical abstractions, while 12 colorful digital prints from the series ‘Every word is an image’ show how words, phrases, and sentences can be encoded as colorful images. The prints have been created by manually combining thousands of visual motifs. Each motif stands for the letters of a specific word, phrase, or sentence and has been generated by custom software for language representation.

Krasi Dimtch


Replacing paintbrush and paint with mouse and electronic software, Krasi Dimtch creates complex visual representations of English sentences, inspired by language and the role it plays,

not merely in the expression, but also in the creation of thoughts.


Searching for ways to articulate the answers to existential questions plaguing  her during a period of introspection,  the artist began first by building sequences of English synonyms. she found

that these structures could  bring her answers without taking on another person’s opinion in the translation, which led to her developing custom software for language generation.


The final artworks are a result of a symbiosis between the artist’s imagination  and the software, which represents the symbols of language as visual patterns – an indefinite number of non- identical abstract representations means that each word can create an infinite amount of graphic possibilities.

An Artistic Contribution To The English Language
Krasi Dimtch
by Cornelius Rotich
“My artistic practice is focused on the development and the use of atypical means for representing the symbols of Language. Language became the driving force for my art and the spiritual healer for my mind during a period of introspections in search of answers about the meaning of life in the structures of English Language. And it was there in the net of interrelated as synonyms and antonyms words that I started finding my own (not someone else’s) answers to the existential questions bothering me. Now, I create hybrid artworks that are the result of a symbiosis between my imagination and custom software for generating English sentences and representing them as visual patterns and musical sounds.
My working process starts with the compilation of a text containing phrases found by me in sequences of synonyms and sentences generated by the software. The sentences are then converted by the same software into different images. Finally, I manually create a visual “translation” of the text by using computer mouse instead of paintbrush and thousands of generated by the software images instead of acrylic paints.”

Artist Krasi Dimtch' work mainly focuses on Language and the way it can be used for the discovery of new ideas and the creation of images and sounds encoding them. Her artistic
output has contributed immensely to contemporary art and language as a whole. Her work is deeply inspired by the collective intelligence of humankind while simultaneously
questioning the role of the cultural narratives in society and the stereotypical thoughts they promote. Dimtch's work is helping to address such issues by offering logical solutions to
how to overcome by means of Language limitations caused by Language.

The following are some of the inspirations drawn from Dimtch' works: Language and its role - Krasi Dimtch delved deeply into the role of Language for the formation and the expression of
thoughts and beliefs. She used various challenges presented by English Language to expand the idea of creating art by combining visual patterns encoding words, phrases and sentences. Her work was not only focused on the development of various means for transforming linguistic messages into sequences of colors, forms and sounds but also on the practical development of the notion that every possibly sayable thought could be found in a net formed by interrelated synonyms. The final outcome was the formation of a system for natural language generation and representation which Dimtch uses for the creation of her art.
Language and its manifestations - Dimtch's language-based artworks are vibrant with color
depicting the colors of each vibrational frequency in communication. The digital methodology she developed for their creation involves the use of a custom-made computer program capable of generating different English sentences and visual and audio compositions representing them. The program enables not only the generation of audiovisual representations of every simple idea that is possibly sayable by means of simple English sentences but also the generation of indefinite number of non-identical abstract representations of the same sentence. The program is based on patented methods for natural language generation.
Some of Dimtch's works visualize actual attributes of English language and provide objective example of how to extract ideas from the net of synonyms that belongs to everyone. Also, by exposing some of the net's fragments, where she believes the makers of cultural narratives find their theories, Dimtch challenges the definition of authorship.
Dimtch' artistic and intellectual output has also helped to better understand how computers can
enhance artistic creativity and by combining the generation of novel sentences with the generation of abstract images and music she has broadened the field of computational creativity. In a nutshell, Dimtch' artistic work can be described as comprehensive and pragmatic offering real logical solutions to the challenges of creating and representing language-based thoughts
and ideas. Her unique approach to gaining an understanding of Language and the many possible ways for its representation and interpretation has become a journey for all to witness and reflect on their own.

Dear Krasi Dimtch (Krasimira Dimtchevska),


Each year LACDA invites carefully selected individuals to be Member Artists. You have been curated in! 


We would be delighted to have you to join as a member—please pursue the benefits of doing so below.


The Los Angeles Center for Digital Art has accomplished incredible things over the last twelve years, including over 175 exhibits at LACDA alone. Notable artists have appeared—John Baldessari, Gronk,  Mark Mothersbaugh, Joel-Peter Witkin, Dennis Hopper, Matthew Barney, Richard Prince, and Marina Ambromavic amongst others.  


In the past year numerous  member artists received solo exhibitions and countless others were in group shows, media room and window video exhibits as well as being juried in as winners for our program of competitions. Many member videos were screened at the Downtown Film Festival L.A. In 2016 a number of member artists were featured in the "Museums and the Web" conference exhibit initiative curated by Rex Bruce, the opening reception for this was at the amazing Broad Museum in downtown Los Angeles.


We have collaborated with the Broad Museum, Museums and the Web, Guggenheim Gallery, Pompidou Center, iotaCenter, California Museum of Photography, Dance Camera West, Downtown Film Festival L.A., Orange County Center for Contemporary Art,  Silverlake Film Festival, Riverside Museum, Grammy Museum, Venice Bienalle, Skylight Projects New York, Scope L.A., MoCA, LACMA, The Davis Museum, Red Dot Miami, PhotoLA and PhotoSF. We’ve seen reviews in Artillery, Coagula, Fabrik, L.A. Times, L.A. Weekly, Art Week, THE Magazine, D’Art,  ArtWeek.LA and Art Forum, to name a few.


We want to continue your association with LACDA and the dynamic programming at our Fourth Street location now in its third year. LACDA member artists are selected by invitation only. Benefits of being a member artist include:


• Guaranteed exhibition in one group show per year:

No waiting for this, our exciting members exhibit opens Thursday, April 13 and will have its opening on Saturday April 15. We have begun Saturday openings for certain events as it draws a great core art crowd that differs from the  more “civic minded’ orientation of the Art Walk. Thursday evening will be touted as the “Art Walk Preview.”  This large show occupies all four spaces and all  window displays at LACDA. We will create your print for you (up to 44”x36”, $140 value)—great for out of town artists or those with a time crunch (simply upload your file). Screen your video (just upload the file), or get us your ready to show art. Sign up and exhibit your work!


• Presence on our web site with a gallery of your images:

Your member page appears in Internet searches for your name and is associated with our activities (i.e. our formidable array of top collaborators and associates). Huge numbers of web surfers visit our site as well as curators and press. The vast majority of institutions we have worked with found us on the web. Let them find you too!


• Free participation in one competition per year ($35 value).


• Special consideration for themed group exhibits. We curate from our members pages.

• Discount on printing for local pick ups on luster, semimatte or gloss. That is $10/sq. ft.!
• Solo exhibits will be selected exclusively from our Member Artists roster.
• Use us on your C.V. You are represented by Los Angeles Center for Digital Art.

• Build your exhibition history, at least one exhibit every year at LACDA (Members Show).
• Proof of exhibition provided by LACDA on request, great for academics and others required to show.

• List yourself as an LACDA member artist on your resume.
• Announce accomplishments or shows in our extensive social media with a current reach of over 100,000 users. (exclusive to members and lacda/rexbruce events and info)

• Let our buyers and outside curators peruse your work online in our Member Artists Gallery.

"In the beginning was the Word" - could this particular set of words be a coded message? Several years ago, I tried to answer this question by inventing and implementing the method of the dictionary-aided synonymous differentiation. The method involved the transforming of the initial set of words "In the beginning was the Word" into a derivative text. The method consisted of addition and replacement of words with their synonyms or dictionary definitions. The dictionary-aided synonymous differentiation of a word, a phrase or a sentence, could be an endless process. For me it ended when my curiosity was satisfied, which definitely happened long before the whole dictionary became involved in the process. So after several months of copy, paste, make a choice, and delete daily routine I had managed to produce the following text.

 “In the beginning was the Word” = (in = (Within the bound of) ) + (the beginning = syn. source = syn. authority = syn. right = syn. Absolute) + (Word = syn. command = syn. authority = syn. Absolute = something considered to be the ultimate basis of all thought and being) = The ultimate basis of all thought and being is within the bound of the Absolute. The Absolute includes all of its possible manifestations. The Absolute does not exist as a finished thing. Every conceivable property of the Absolute is shared by some of its manifestations. The actual Universe is one out of all possible manifestations of the Absolute. Time is one out of all possible manifestations of the Absolute.

In the beginning of the present Universe sequences of competing primary events has been initiated. Configurations of primary events that survived determined the properties of the present Universe. All further events became their consequences. The present Universe is a selective system and as such summarizes one possible chain of events that survived.

The sum of all possible manifestations of the present Universe does not exist as a finished thing. The present Universe sequentially expresses events that fit the conditions set by the fittest primary event and its offspring events. The present Universe in all its details is in a process of becoming. Every conceivable property of the present physical Universe is shared by some of its manifestations.

Human mind is a manifestation of the present Universe therefore a property of the Absolute. Human mind has an access to unfit already extinct events from the past of the present Universe, including the Absolute. The supposedly invariant rules that order the present Universe are properties of the Absolute. Everything that is physical obeys the supposedly invariant rules that order the present Universe.

The collective human mind is in a process of becoming and does not exist as a finished thing. The collective human mind is a non-relative and non-subjective property of the Absolute.

Lifelessness and deathlessness are properties of a sayable therefore possible Universe. Life after death is a property of a sayable therefore possible Universe. Life and death are defining properties of the present Universe. The nervous system is a defining property of the present Universe. The immune system is a defining property of the present Universe.

Human brain is a defining property of the present Universe. Human language and thought are defining properties of the present Universe. Thoughts are defining properties of the present Universe.

A defining property affects the chain of events initiated by the birth of the present Universe.

The exact contents of my particular fantasies are not a defining property of this Universe. I have dreams that are inconsequential properties of the present Universe. An inconsequential property is a random event in a sense that it does not affect the chain of events initiated by the birth of the present Universe.

Not everything sayable contradicts the invariant rules that mark the expansion of the present Universe. The expansion of the present Universe is a selective process.

The selective process is a property of the Absolute. The thought production is a selective process. Thoughts are defining properties of the semantic field. The properties of the semantic field are properties of the Absolute.

The sum of all possible thoughts includes the set of all meaningless thoughts. A meaningless thought is an event that does not fit the context set by the present Universe. Fairy tales and computers are properties of the present Universe. The sum of all possible thoughts does not exist as a finished thing. The sum of all possible thoughts produced by the sum of all possible humans is an approximate replica of the Absolute."

The fact that I was able to transform "In the beginning was the word" into a set of not completely unoriginal ideas convinced me that all possibly sayable thoughts are embedded in sequences of synonyms.
