My intention is to record new work by uniquely showing an artist in their environment, getting close to the subject matter while offering a fresh look at the world. Making derives, from 14 days spent Interrailing across Europe with only a GoPro, iPad and a train pass in my possession.

Venice Arts invites you to join us on August 1 for the opening reception of our fourth annual summer juried exhibition, “Disaster Is My Muse.” Taking its name from an Art Speigelman quote, this exhibition explores the ways in which disaster creeps into the everyday, making a once familiar situation uncomfortable, terrifying, or tragic. In this show, 24 artists from around the world showcase their own iterations of unexpected disaster, from the ironic, to the humorous, to the complex and personal.

Hope Street Ltd presents: SENSE & SUSTAINABILITY performance 19/07/14
Mentor feedback: 'Jordan's response to the brief was thoughtful and imaginative. He formed a clear idea of which animations he wanted to produce early on and began work almost immediately. He came up with the idea to create the carriage with an animated 'journey' in it's window, and acted on getting this made with the production team. Though he is more practiced at working alone and producing visuals in realtime for live events, he did respond well to learning different animation programmes which allow visuals to be pre-made and he took instruction where necessary. He worked on his animation frequently at our studio and enjoyed doing a few late nights with Andy towards the end to ensure he met the deadline.'
