About Me

Jason Lord

Interdisciplinary Artist and Arts Educator


I live in Durham, NC, where I make art, tinker with things, and collect roadside debris. I started walking in the spring of 2020 and haven’t stopped. Walking as an aesthetic practice has become fundamental to my interdisciplinary art practice. I walk almost eight miles a day on average, and on March 10, 2022, I had my two-year anniversary of walking at least five miles every day, rain or shine, for 731 consecutive days–two years–and around 5600 miles.

I studied writing, music, and theater in the mid-nineties at Middlebury College before moving to Chapel Hill, NC, where I cobbled together the rent with theatrical set design gigs, session work as a vocalist, coffee-slinging, cooking, and stage performances. In 1997, I started teaching music at area schools and pre-schools, and in 2000 I began a twenty-year stint developing, implementing, and teaching in middle school integrated arts programs at two progressive middle schools in Durham, NC.
