    • Born in 1971 in Gdansk, Poland, C.T. Jasper lives in Brooklyn, New York. His practice comprises the use of various media, concentrating principally on video art, sound, film, sculpture, installation, collage, and manipulative interventions within already existing films. These media form a threshold through which Jasper explores the dissonance between imaginary and fragmented cinematic space and the physical experience of architecture, and in his work he also excavates history through postcolonial and experimental anthropological lenses.
