Jürgen Trautwein is an experimental artist working in a variety of forms, including new media and hypertext works, temporary interferences, installations and classical forms such as painting, drawing and photography. jtwine has been creating web works since 1996 with a strong focus on repetitious sound-image-motion-interactions. jtwine.com functions like an archive of fictional and real incidents where personal experience merges with visual research and documentary. jtwine is combining high and low tech, reflecting on the heterogeneous and pluralistic character of our visual culture and the web. his work has been shown widely in museums, non profit art spaces, festivals and galleries around the world.
