Jamie Jenkinson: I work predominantly with my iPhone


« My Specialism
I work predominantly with my iPhone, ‘the words most popular camera’, to produce medium-specific videos manipulating the cameras inbuilt features as a mode of unconventional image making. Influenced by 1920’s abstract film, and the experimental film and video from the 1960’s onwards, I am interested in the mediums image, reception and production, rather than narrative, documentation or representation. Using consumer products to produce my videos, which are often heavily abstracted, engages the spectator’s cinematic cognition through widespread first-hand experience of video production, an understanding unique to our time. In addressing the video medium, as well as its accessibility, these works have developed into sculptures, installations, drawings, and performances. » Jamie Jenkinson
