Jonatan T. Wejnold's practice takes inspiration from modern behavior in a digitised world. With a deep fascination by our way of encountering, both within a digital framework and in our everyday lives, he is constantly seeking out new ways of exploring our engagement and creation of identities in modern-day life, where there is a continuous increment in the valuation of digital and virtual engagement. Wejnold's practice revolves around prejudices of sensual behavior, often delving into the transitional space between empirical reality and human imagination, challenging the tendency to perceive it as an "either/or" dichotomy linked to the technological developments in encounters and perception in contemporary society. He explores technology as expansive environments and aspires to create an interchange station of simultaneous breakdown and endorsement when entangling human cognition with digital worlds.
