About this artist

Esser's work arises from the urge of understanding thinks by taking them apart and reconstructing them. But because modern technology has a tendency towards ubiquity, it becomes harder to tell what is technological and what is not. What is an interface and what is the real world? In his work, he deconstructs and reconstructs devices, releasing them from their functional purpose and letting them just be what they are: arranged materials conducting a dynamic process.

About This Project

When glazed ceramics come out of a hot oven into colder air, a moment of magic takes place as far as Esser’s concerned. The quick switch in temperatures makes creates tension that makes the material tense up in minuscule movements. These movements cause a subtle ticking sound, as if the materials are alive for a brief moment and they’re complaining about the cold.
