Jasper van den Ende (NL) is a lens-based visual artist whose in-depth engagement with light explores the urban urgencies of contemporary living in an energy conscious age. With a fascination for the contrast between the highly adaptable qualities of the human eye and the objective characteristics of the ‘photo-eye’, his recent work Exposure Value ZER0̷ expresses his rumination on extravagant night lighting.
His aim is to explore the five most light saturated cities (Tokyo, New York City, Cairo, New Delhi, and Hong Kong) in the upcoming five years to deepen his research on artificial night lighting and to build an archive for the public and decision makers. In doing so, his works also shed light on the limits of photo-media relating to the representation of artificial light.
