Chilean photographer and visual artist Jon Jacobsen works within the tension of the real and the fabricated in his digitally manipulated works. The artist has recently explored this with make-up artist Alex Box, dancer Jonathon Luke Baker, and director Nick Knight in a film created during his SHOWstudio residency. Their “Die Verwandlung” film “encompasses a fashion film, editorial and process imagery exploring metamorphosis and motion, informed by Jacobsen’s interest in the dichotomy between digital and organic states.”
“Self-taught, he started creating conceptual imagery at age fifteen in his hometown, Quintero, Chile,” a statement says. “His work contains graphic, narrative images utilizing symbolism and the abstract through different digital techniques, such as photomanipulations, illustrations and .GIF animations.”
