Jakub Geltner

I work with available digital tools – in my work I use only digital media

I see digital technologies as the best medium of visual language of today the most important thing in my work is computer which helps me generate, edit and present images.

I believe that the development of digital image strongly influences the perception of the world in which we live; all topics and themes I process are connected with the ethos of technical images

I am interested in the space around us – the landscape

I am interested in the transformation of natural landscapes and human landscapes and their interpenetration. Till now I have chosen to process in my work social topics such as technology, architecture, urbanism, totalitarianism, dystopia, utopia
