Android Jones brings forth a new body of electrically dependant artwork to the 99 High Art Collective on March 5th 2010. Jones draws his inspiration from the edge of reality to the corners of human perception. For Android the true medium of art is the mind. He translates the electrical impulses of creativity and imagination directly into an interface powered by light and energy. Several of his new works will be on display in custom assembled Light boxes measuring up to 8 feet in length and some over 4 feet in height. The Light Box objects display Jones’ creative effort in rich and vibrant colors. The light boxes express a frequency that no analog medium can achieve. Each work brings the viewer closer to the intended experience of the medium in which they were created.
Along with the light boxes, Android has prepared a series of Asian Raw Silk framed prints, some measuring over 9 feet in length. Two years ago, while Android was on a digital art speaking tour through China, he was formally invited to a very special Print Studio located in the heart of Beijing. These prints were born within the walls of the forbidden city, and were developed with a patented technique. They are thus a hybrid between the ancient traditional Chinese fine art silk printing, modern day color and electric precision – a one-of-a-kind high quality merger of ‘East meets West’. This event marks the first time that this rare printing process is on display in the United States.
