Artist statement

Djeff’s work strives to question the behavioral impacts of new habits conditioned by technology. He often puts this semi-conscious assimilation in a playful confrontation of object-icons of past eras, which are diverted from their primary uses by the introduction of more recent technologies. From game art to installation, his works invite the viewer to reflect and be concient of these new modalities of automatic life. His installations play with the facination that man has for technology evoking the impact of their evolution and of human life upon our planet.
