Hi, I'm Mike Jacobs.

By trade, I'm a software designer and programmer. I take care in designing technology with precise functionality for specific needs.

As an artist—creating art in the real world, digital graphic art, videos imagery, art in the real world, digital graphic art, videos sound, and art in the real world, digital graphic art, videos interaction —I am compelled to break out of these rigid relationships with our technologies, repurpose them to do things for which they were not designed, and find beauty in their limitations and failures. Along with this playful disrespect, my process utilizes chance, generative systems, and shoddily constructed custom software and hardware as a way to arrive at unexpected outcomes, which I then curate, or use as collaborator to build into final pieces.

Documentation of my art practice has moved to my Instagram.
