In his video, Generator p-730, Jakub Nepraš tells the story of his arrival in the modern capitalist industrialized world. Nothing has changed. People are still just ants compared to dominant machines and systems. The circuit board of a computer is transformed into a microcosm of everyday life. Boundaries between the “real” and the illusory are blurred. Nepras explores subjective experiences of urban reality. He uses new media in his work as a device to facilitate the reconstruction or the creation of functional units.
