Profile Information

What I do:
Make, experience and share ideas through collaboration
A little more about me:
We are collaborative artists, Jason & Becky.

As artists, we draw on our knowledge and experience in both the fields of graphic design and fine art, in order to question our current human and social state. We do this by challenging perceptions and encouraging engagement, blurring boundaries and pushing limits through interaction.

We change spaces. We design and create site specific physical and/or psychological environments which often use participation as a core element. Using sound, light, space, proximity, moral dilemmas and decision making, we subvert the familiarisation of people and place. Soundscapes, sonic installations and performances, replica realities and fictional spaces are often reinforced with designed documentation and visualised dialogue.

Viewers and participants are often challenged to rethink their relationships to one another and their surroundings, confronting altered situations and simulated environments designed to create the uncertainty of internal dispute.
Location:
Swansea
Projects I’m working on:
CIVIC
--------
Considering the City, Architecture, Art and the Urban Environment at Mission Gallery, Swansea.

Collaborations between four artists and four architectural practices.

Curated by Bella Kerr.

Our work for CIVIC; 'A Cowboy In Tomorrowland: The City As Theme Park' involves a reimagining of the City Centre as an experience, rather than a passive disengagement. A series of 'performative' audio walks will begin on the 13th May 2014, with limited spaces available. These walks aim to re-engage participants with the city centre, forming the background to a host of personal adventures. Stay tuned for more details on how to book a place...



Forever Academy
-------------------------
Alongside Owen Griffiths and Fern Thomas, we are involved in the relaunch and administration of Forever Academy - an alternative school of creativity.

Focusing on dialogue, exchange, cooking and eating together, this artist-led initiative responds to the current cultural and economic climate. Shaped by the participants, Forever Academy will explore creative strategies and shared questions resulting in new idea generating processes.

The Academy creates a temporary and nomadic centre for dialogue and community. Through partnerships with cultural organisations and established networks, Forever Academy attempts to create a space for artists to focus on elements of practice and to raise questions about their work in conversation with other artists, curators, writers, and thinkers.

Forever Academy acknowledges that artists can have a very real role in change through intervention, discussion and image-making in a political, environmental and social context. Inspiration includes Black Mountain College, Free International University, Artist Placement Group and other artist-led DIY projects that enable artists to really focus on how they can work within our current society.

Future terms of Forever Academy will host speakers across disciplines including anthropology, ecology and economics, informing discussion and reflecting the positioning of artistic practice within the wider field.



Public Information Night
---------------------------------
Public Information is an ongoing experimental project for Oriel Myrddin as part of the Dylan Thomas 100 Festival, Exploring collaboration between artists across disciplines, Public Information Night features Peski Records, the AE101 Collective, Peter Finnemore and Craig Wood using Dylan Thomas' war films made for the Ministry of Information as a starting point.



From Here & There: Perspectives on Drawing
--------------------------------------------------------------
As part of Elysium Gallery's cultural exchange with the Clara Hatton Gallery at Colorado State University, USA, 'From Here and There' forms part of Wales's Dylan Thomas 100 celebrations.

CABIN FERVOUR

We are about to set sail, leaving the comfort and security of land, to embark on a journey that will bring 6 artists together to sail a yacht and share experiences over two days in the Bristol Channel. Cabin Fervour is a journey into uncharted territory for us all in terms of relationships to each other and our environment. We have never met, and currently hold only the knowledge that we are each an artist. Differing practices and personalities are about to live together, at sea for two days.… Continue
