Jeroen Van Loon: the future is almost all temporary

With a degree in digital media design and a relatively short career which began no later than 2010, Jeroen Van Loon has shortly become one of the most interesting media artist internationally. His research is able to surprisingly and ironically integrate a critical approach to the use of technological tools - in particular the Internet, with a solid theoretical and conceptual framework. Such an approach results in the production of objects and installations that enter the exhibition space with disarming immediacy.
