VIEW IN MY ROOM
This "abstract photogram" reflects the problems of today's world, raises questions of origin and creates contemporary art. Does unicorn exist? - title of art is based on the google search phrase by which it was created. Orignal artwork from project "Lost Connections" and series of 15 motives: "Intend to turn a mighty". This project is about our addiction on mobile phones and internet connection. The concept is based on the Google Searches error view - a selection of the most popular topics and phrases of the Internet. What people are looking for, what is "interested," what our current world illustrates. It's not a shout in the dark, it's public Google's statistics, which I'm simulating in my cellphone with a limited network connection. Image information is then deconstructed into monochromatic surfaces by the software itself, so we are also randomly displayed on the displays. What we get is a cut of reality, a document of the time. Random and unwanted minimalist pun on the background of big words. I am photographically recording what people around the world can see on their phones or displays - a new reality and visuality, an abstract world that inadvertently makes up for software and hardware errors in our devices. About Material and adjustation: Print on Baryt paper. I framed this artwork with a modern white handmade boxed frame that was manufactured specialy for this series of artworks, this frame have a UVglas front, this means the artwork is protected from ultraviolet light.

Some questions/answers to consider: - What is the subject matter of my work? I focused on the problems of intertwining the digital and analogue worlds, fascinated by the boom of visual information, display errors, data loss, and privacy. Since 2015, I've been working with Google searches and added contemporary themes to my work. - What is my work about? I've been long time preoccupied with new media and photography, and perceives it as a sovereign aesthetic visual form and at the same time examines how to extend its expressive possibilities. The games with flat geometry in photography, boldly competing or complementing the world of traditional painting, represent however only one layer of my creative process. The other, in fact the original, focus in my work is on the visual movement in the depths of the digital space with all its limitations, world of media mistakes created by sophisticated graphic imaging or search systems. - How do I make my work? According to the traditional methods of photography, printing and painting. - Where do I find the images I use? All around, from what we search for, what we care about on the network. I only use the world and the people around me. - How do I want the audience to respond to my work? To think and look at the current problems with distance and in the confrontation of my thoughts, to look at the visual side of things and say, this is pure and yet I see the story. - How does my work compare to historical or contemporary artwork? My work is react on my way to contemporary problems in focus on traditional paintings. I use minimalist colour “errors“ to construct a new reality that may be linked to the “original“ artwork. A similar situation occurred with the analogue trend in visual abstract painting in the last decade of the last century. Importantly, the collection is not supposed to represent a battle between the two media - painting and photography. Its focus is on expanding the possibilities of abstract aesthetic imagery and as such it also conveys a slight warning against the flood of photographs and equally the endless need for an aesthetic grasp of the world surrounding us. ______________________________________ Jan Dyntera Contemporary artist - lives and works in Prague.
