The graphics created by Jonathan Steffens take advantage of the effect of well-directed interference: Motion is cut into individual images and these are overlaid on top of each other. By moving the graphic, the individual images become visible alternately in quick sequences and create the illusion of a film.
Thematically, Jonathan Steffens' work deals with fantastic industrial worlds, with interlocking machine parts that produce movement in endless rotation only to keep themselves alive. The form follows a function, which again creates new forms, whose function lies only in their own form.
Rollbuch / The technical mechanism of Rollbuch was found within millions of roll film cameras just two decades ago. With the idea of creating a "book with an endless page within a winding-box", we are aiming to give a new and fluid reading experience.
