At first glance, Aaron Scheer's works of the DaNa-series seem to have been created by digital automatic processes or proceeding computer programs. They are reminiscent of glitches, chaotic data overlays or algorithmic processes, for example, and sometimes have photographic-representational impressions. However, they are not based on any real existing objects or other representational points of reference. Instead, they are free image creations in the technical sense, which Scheer creates with the help of digital image editing software. He uses the digital world of UX design (user experience design) as a visual reference, as well as analog painting techniques (Scheer's biographical background is analog, traditional painting). Scheer's own subjective-aesthetic decisions, which he realizes with digital "drawing tools,” are the only things visible. His final works are printed as inkjet prints. Scheer's works could be described as imitations or replicas of fictious digital images, as "fake digitals" created with digital tools; he himself speaks of "raw distorted painterly versions of big data".
