Jasmijn Visser is an artist who works on the intersection of art, design, science and journalism. At the core of her practice is the topic of complexity, especially in relation to geopolitical conflict. In an age of internet 2.0., the perception of our world, as well as experience of time has shifted. In order to interpret this shift, Visser explores ordering, aesthetics and narrative patterns of geopolitical cases, and proposes new forms of complexity framing. Rather then reducing, abstracting or simplifying complexity, the artist seeks a way explain complexity through complexity, for example in 'Conflict Atlas –Geopolitics and Contingencies on the Malvinas/Falklands Archipelago', where she shifts the centre of planet earth to the Falkland Islands in order to view global conflict from their perspective. Just as Visser questions the structures which build the foundation of our society, she also turns more introspective and questions what an artist is, and what the artwork can be. The artist concedes autonomy by working in multiple collaborative constructions, wether it is interdisciplinary or trans-disciplinary. Visser is especially interested in the dialogue between fine art and experimental design, for which she has collaborated with designers such as Metahaven, PWR and S†ëfan Schäfer. Her artworks often are accessible online or even made by using existing structures of the internet, such as the algorithmic live film 'Serf Club', which was featured at Transmediale 2018.
Jasmijn Visser was a resident at De Ateliers Amsterdam. Before that she studied Fine Arts, as well as Design & Education at the Utrecht School of the Arts. She is a recent fellow at Delfina Foundation London, as well as fellow at Meertens Institute Amsterdam. In 2020 Visser will start a PhD at the department CREAM of Westminster University London, where she will research Climate Change & Complexity.
