Hynek Alt

Hynek Alt is a Czech artist who in his practice operates between photography, video and installation. Alt is concerned with forms of perception of the human in the current digital era and the navigation in between physical surroundings and constructed social systems. He uses generic objects and situations, analyses them and changes the way of their presentation while questioning their purpose. He employs at times widely accessible and cheap technologies (photography, Xerox, offset) aiming at precision, specificity and thorough research while usually arriving at a very general outcome and at times high-tech methods (3D scanning, 3D rendering) to achieve the opposite. His work consists of either a combination of different elements or isolation of one from the other to create new tension and layers of possible reading while challenging their usual hierarchy.
