Pixels are everywhere today, and they have a lot of influence on us.
This project is about the polariation of the people by the media. This is illustrated in an interactive intallation, where your position defines the amount of distortion that is created.
The more they moved to the sides, the more distorted the view became.

The Jean-Jacques Collective grew as a remembrance to past days when both brothers were leaders in the Chiro
(a Flemish movement that aims to support young people in their physical,
mental and spiritual development through play and being outdoors).
Even though Jannes, Simen and Helena were schooled in different fields,
a passion for eco-politics advocated through storytelling and photography, connected them.
They believe that to induce long-term change within any given society, which is stabilized by a committed government,
is to persuade that same government to change their policies. Top-down and bottom-up models in a necessary equilibrium.
Where both the people and whoever represents them find each other in a poised climate.
They advocate dignity through design and beauty, and capture time unfiltered and honest.
Moreover, Jean-Jacques Collective is a free space for creativity, we design, build, curate, photograph and write,
always trying to find common ground to work on. We strongly support the interchange of ideas between different fields.
It is on this cross-section that JJC really thrives. We are not one, we are a collection of many things.
