Born in 1974 in Grenoble, Jacques Perconte now lives and works in Paris. He is well-known as one of the pioneers of internet art. He is among the first artists to have worked on compression codecs.

 
 

Jacques Perconte works for the first time with Triptyque Films in 2010, and directs the experimental short film After the Fire. It's a huge success in international film festivals (Tribeca Film Festival New-York, International Film Festival Rotterdam, GNCR Prize at the Festival Côté Court - Pantin, etc.), and the film even gets to be on the frontpage of French short films magazine Bref.

Jacques Perconte works again with Triptyque Films the next year, and directs the experimental film Impressions. Nicole Brenez will review it in Sight & Sound as one of the most important films in 2011.

 
 

As nothing in the machine is alien to Jacques Perconte, he knows how to push it beyond its limits, how to think and create with its flaws. After him, the digital machinery is not faithful to the world because it can record its apparence, but because it can perceive its vibrations (in particular its chromatic ones), which are not mimetic, but analogous to the vibrations of reality. After more than twenty films and many monographic exhibitions, he still declares : "I don't search, I venture !"
