    War is the delicate situation par excellence in which humans have been immersed since the mists of time. Humans are the only species (with ants) to go to war. It is in its genes. Our ancestors were warriors, we are their descendants. We are the products of immemorial slaughters. Contemporary forms of war are no less bloody and no less harsh than ancestral wars, they just take more varied forms. The War series features infinite generative animations of war situations. They are real wars between inexhaustible armies of pixels programmed to fight and kill each other. They are carnages (of pixels), large abstract warfare frescoes, of cathartic effect.
