Jason lives as an artist in San Francisco. Each piece is a combination of photos he has taken in the city, and his graphic art in which he is altering that piece. He sees beauty in everything. That is one thing we share in common.
Jason does a great job describing his work. I will quote from his introduction:
“ The evolution of machines and our dependence on them has grown so vastly in a short amount of time. Without hesitation, we embrace technology with excitement and wonder. I’m amazed and yet frightened by it all. On one side, there is a utopian mind-set of how wonderful life will be as our bodies slowly merge with the machines on a molecular level, perhaps becoming immortal. On the other side, there is something abnormal about the merger that defies the law of nature. “Man” is officially forcing its own evolution. No longer science fictions, we are merging with machines at an astonishing rate. Once we go forward, there is no going back.
With my camera I am documenting “the present” and with my paints I am envisioning “the future”. All of these pieces, these “scraps,” are visual documents. These dirty, rusty, dented, cracked, chipped, scratched, imperfect castaways are all pieces of a story waiting to be told anew…to be salvaged.”
I hope you are able to grasp a little of the beauty we have found. Be sure to tell us how it impacts you and what your thoughts are as you interact with it. It has a lot to say and I believe each person will see something unique in it.
