Gabriel's practice is concerned with the fundamentals of how digital processes create imagery, the mimetic relationship between physical and digital phenomena, and the altering of perception through abstraction. Inspired by alternative culture, quantum physics and esotericism in the 21st century, his work explores the unintended phenomena in the interactions of different visual devices and how they relate to the natural processes which underlie our universe. Using photography and video allows him to generate imagery similar to software generated processes but in a more performative and organic way, playing with what William S. Burroughs stated was the ability of the artist to observe and create “something that did not exist until he observed it”.

By experimenting with the physical interactions of different cameras and displays, Gabriel is refocusing attention on the materiality of the screen. The highly abstract and psychedelic work is largely raw and created organically as opposed to computer generated and is essentially a mix of light and color with the viewer becoming absorbed into the work. The videos, GIFs, and print work use color, movement, and scale to create tension between the work and the viewer, generating a somatic experience similar to hallucination and altered states of consciousness. The extremely abstract patterns and forms stimulate the mind into apophenia, or the tendency to perceive meaningful patterns from random data. The resulting imagery ranges from seemingly microscopic lifeforms to nebulae, and the work becomes animated as though watching astronomical and biological processes unfold.
