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

The work “Mono Culture” (or, simply, MC.315) reflects on what is natural and what is not. In this work Jochem contemplates; what qualifies to be alive? If a plant is dependent on technological systems to live in an environment, does this mean these systems are part of the organism itself? Does life have to be biological? Can a synthetic autonomous system be alive as well?
