Artist statement

Jos Jansen is a visual artist whose work spans image-making (photography, film and data visualisation), writing, investigative journalism, psychology and philosophy. His chief concerns include learning to see where people’s boundaries lie, especially in relation to technology, science and nature. Do we still control technology – or does technology control us?
Although he takes reality as a starting point, his narratives intend to be personal and subjective, bridging the divide between reality and fiction, and between autonomous art and documentary. Photo books, writings, exhibitions and video installations are favourite media to present his work.
