Julian Konczak

My work is orientates itself around an examination of our surroundings and the way we perceive them. A fascination with both the natural world and the metropolis pulls me in opposing directions and provides the raw material for my work.

short work description
25 is a collection of work that develops the representation of time andspace using the 5 x 5 grid. The work is made up of a series oflarge-scale printed panels and projected digital images. Thecombination of transient linear and interactive digital works withstatic print imagery allows the viewer to respond to the intricatedetail of the static image along with the fluid qualities of thedigital medium. The 25-image grid format uses simultaneousrepresentations of the same subject, each segment confronts the next,there is an absence of negative space in the grid, and so the imagesare forced to bleed into one another. The viewer is presented with aganzfield – the blocks of image become a fractured whole.
