Jacob Whittaker

Artist, Filmmaker

Jacob Whittaker lives and works in Cardigan, Ceredigion. Often working with other artists and individuals much of his work is concerned with documenting processes, recording and re-presentation; with exploring creative methods of documenting live processes, sound generating and art activity and presenting in ways relevant and sympathetic to the artform.

Using found objects and consumer hifi equipment, performances embrace the restrictions and idiosyncrasies of the broken machines and degraded media, and explore ‘failure’ as a compositional device. Accessibility is also key: a belief in the validity and equality of ALL art forms and creative expression has led to collaborations with artists working in a variety of media, from sculpture to music, as well as work with community groups and local arts organisations. Within installations and performances, and via the use of new media, web casting, and social networking as methods of distribution and exhibition, the work facilitates interactivity and participation both locally and globally, offering up experiences of the creative act as a collective event.
