Geltner assembles clusters of technological equipment and surveillance devices to building façades and popular public sites, drawing attention to the saturation of these systems in our surroundings. the congregation of these manufactured gadgets and their subsequent growth process is conceived as a starting point of an infection, and expands upon the idea that they are a hurt, rather than a help, to culture and society.
Nests is a four year long project by Prague based artist, Jakub Geltner. Satalite dishes and surveillance cameras are conspicuously placed in both natural and urban landscapes. The effect is rather uncanny, conjuring images of seagulls and pigeons. Nests was installed in the coastal city of Aarhus and Prauge. You can see more of Jakub Gletner’s work HERE.
