Swiss Institute and Métamatic Research Initiative (MRI), Amsterdam proudly present The Web, a new immersive installation by Jon Kessler. Since 2009 MRI has commissioned contemporary artists to reflect the legacy of the late Swiss artist Jean Tinguely (1925–1991), well known for his kinetic sculptures. Expanding Tinguely’s vision, the work of Jon Kessler builds a bridge between mechanics and electronics, analog and digital worlds.
Much like the Internet itself, The Web acts as both a sentient organism and an environmental space: it facilitates the internal circuit between viewer, camera, and monitor, while simultaneously doubling as a sprawling architectural structure.
