Jakub Choma

Jakub Choma (SK, b. 1995) Lives and works in Prague, Czech Republic. In his work develops the aesthetics of digital waste with emphasis on the material nature of the seemingly immaterial digital environment. He uses his picture assemblages as segments from which he creates within installations larger wholes in the form of ambient assemblages. He has recently used cork, which he works and shapes in different manners while deliberately employing the often contradictory associations connected with this material. His art is typified by the aesthetics of DIY, a phenomenon that he places in contrast with the current trends of new materialism.
