Biography

 


Implementing global conceptual projects on a local level is characteristic for Ottjörg A.C.’s artistic position. The human encounters here are in this case just as indispensable as the consistency of the craftsmanship and technique. His working medium includes the Internet as well as real movement within the space, the pen or pencil, the camera and the gravure printing press.
