Jonathan Skjøtt's work combines animation, slit-scan video, and glitch art to render semi-abstract depictions of sensual and emotional human experiences. His pieces tackle the sensation of human presence and being alive as mediated through technology. Inspired by Bill Viola, Zbig Rybczynski, and Marina Abramovic he uses slow-motion, unrealistic representations of time & space, as well as of his own body, in his practice. For many of his works, Jonathan applies his knowledge of computer science to create computational tools for making his art. An exemplary piece of his, Glitch Hands (2018), employs slit-scan video and glitch effects to create a sense of quiet and subtle intensity as two hands embrace.
