Prague-based artist Jakub Geltner places modern technology in its natural environment… errrr…. in a natural environment. The clever installations appear as flocks of perched birds from far away, but as you approach you get quite a shock – the “birds” are actually sarcastically placed security cameras. Geltner‘s newest piece titled ‘Nest 05,’ was presented at the 2015 Sculpture by the Sea in Aarhus, Denmark.
The artist has been producing these sculptures for four years using common technological items like the cameras and satellite dishes. Since his start, Geltner‘s work has been placed on a former elementary school, a church facade, a waterfront, and the skeleton structure of a former KV KSC (Regional Committee of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia).
