Kerry Jones

I am interested in appropriating and deconstructing image, sound and language – digital and physical twitches that disrupt time and narratives.

I am a multi – media artist based in Scotland whose practice incorporates film; sound; archive; manipulated still images & site-specific, participatory interactions. I am interested in rhythmic assemblage and cut up techniques. I often layer elements in anachronistic ways that perhaps result in an audio-visual perpetual busyness without any obvious traditional function or narrative. For me this non-linear, experimental approach creates liminal portals sometimes quite nonsensical and occasionally veering more towards parts than a whole. My research often centres around ideas of rhizome and multi stranded looped audio inserts gleaned from reading and internet browsing. I’m currently browsing Buckminster Fuller and the Earth as a Spaceship.
