For Jesper, taming raw, chaotic creativity and a playground where light and movement are an integral part of the process. Artistic technique based on fundamental research at the intersection of material and philosophy.
Light, sculpture and movement are key words for Jesper,and if an installation can be statically structured, the process is always dynamic. Playful thought experiments, distilled into concrete visual outputs, are descriptive of Jesper.
