Jordan Wolfson represents a new generation of artists for whom digitalization was part of the context in which they grew up. Wolfson combines his own visual material with images, film and sound fragments that he encounters on the internet or in art history. In this way he creates his own artistic universe in the form of animated films, in which artificial characters add themes such as alienation, sex and sentimentality. With these animations, Wolfson examines the physical and psychological environment of man in our post-digital era.
