First, photography seemed like a subset of video which was easier to grasp. Later the medium’s idiosyncracies became more interesting and Jakob Wierzbas works left their subject and places and turned towards the image itself. Stereo photography and stereoscopic video revealed new fields for research — technologies that oscillate between obsolescence, hype, promise and disappointment, and that also remind us of our own bodies. Simultaneously, the connection to computers produced new possibilities for image creation and destruction.
Jakob Wierzbas works are ususally “open” machines or “transparent systems”. Passionate about sharing knowledge, he started making radio and teaching.
