Jacques Perconte is a French Filmmaker and new media artist living in Paris. Since 1999 his films and new media projects explore the digital medium. He is well known as one of the pioneers of French internet art. He is among the first artists to have worked on compression codecs. Jacques made his debuts with internet and video art. His first films date back from 1995 and his first internet artworks from 1996. The website www.technart.net is the core of his work, showcasing all his activities (notes, articles, performances... the web is endless). Even though his works become less and less theoretical, the relation between form and substance remains crucial. Jacques Perconte works on the forms of fiction on various medias as well as a formal research, focused on the body and the landscape. Jacques Perconte apparently has a good knowledge of his technology, which serves him when dealing with frame and color. He tries to transform digital technology into a new media, which can be esthetically as rich as any other classical art.
