Published by The Eriskay Connection. Edited by Rob van Hoesel. Introduction by Robbert Dijkgraaf.
Dutch artist Jos Jansen has developed a wide-ranging practice encompassing photography, film, installation, data visualization, writing, philosophy and investigative journalism. In his work, Jansen interrogates the relationship between humanity, science, technology and nature played out in labs, greenhouses and on the surfaces of our touch-screen telephones.
In his latest publication, Universe, the artist examines fascinating research issues arising in what he terms the “beta domain”—fields of groundbreaking scientific experimentation and testing such as black holes, gravitational waves, new galaxies and the latest DNA technology. Jansen enters this almost-incomprehensible world and constructs his own parallel artistic universe, using images taken in research labs, data visualizations and found footage. Universe is an artist’s elliptical exploration of the limits of the visual to represent a world where science, fantasy and art meet.
