About Jim

I am interested in a kind of ‘entropic’ image”an image that has the capacity to de-familiarize itself. My current work is an attempt to unravel the photograph and play with established notions of time and space, notwithstanding our understanding of what gives things context. Through fragmentation and re-composition of the photographic space, the non-linear nature of reading the image is folded in on itself. The structure of the photograph is unwound and reshuffled. This reshaping is an iterative process that spurs a generation of something altogether different; something ineffable.

Jim is an AAD guest curator

i think that it is interesting how in the background of the giant city of a house there is something on a dock exploding or something. also how the masterpiece of architecture could be wiped out by a large current.

this "house" would be a very interesting architectural project to see in real life - it's fantastic

Awakening photographs I like, a still image at times talks to me, dreams evolve in a snap's shot, adrenaline rises in me, I don't know why, I don't question, either, never question art being my motto in gaining happiness.This is me, but the world is one of individuals, this I'm sure.
