About

Esser's work arises from the urge of understanding thinks by taking them apart and reconstructing them.

Because modern technology has a tendency towards ubiquity, it becomes harder to tell what is technological and what is not. What is an interface and what is the real world? In his work, he deconstructs and reconstructs devices, releasing them from their functional purpose and letting them just be what they are: arranged materials conducting a dynamic process.

"What I aim for is to create an alienation from common devices and make their appearance visible in another context."

These alterations are made by adding and erasing materials. until they find a new natural form.
