KUNST BLOCK BALVE
Looking at the shore. Crossing is imminent. The ice makes it possible. The first step. The second step. A crack. A break. Fall into the water. The current sucks under the ice. The view up distorted. Suggested world movement. Yet still. Cold. Thousand needles on the skin. Numbness. Warmth. A feeling of security. Dull weightlessness. Shortness of breath. Euphoria. Will to survive. Motivation. Hope. Last strength. Strongest drive. Is there an exit? The hands scan. Silence. Gliding? No. Swimming! Under the ice, you hear the tapping.

Dix's works are not simply representations of confusion; they are embodiments of synapses firing in unfamiliar patterns, ideas born of the unpredictable, and emotions trapped in code. His art conveys the sense of experiencing both the height of human creativity and the nadir of digital alienation.
