Jochem Esser is a visual artist interested in sound, tradition and technology. Esser's work balans between static world of objects and the oscillating nature of electronics.
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?Artist Resume
