About Me

Jason Lord

Interdisciplinary Artist

ABOUT

Broadly speaking, my interdisciplinary work is about systems:  of communication, of understanding, and of interconnection.   I seek to make work that serves as an interface between multiple, sometimes disparate, ideas:  a sound collage that explores geography, language, and simultaneity; a sculptural installation that introduces a new iconography resulting from an investigation into religion, aesthetic walking, and found objects; or a room transformed into a learning space in which people can explore questions about the relationships between the subconscious mind, mapping, and music.   At the core of my inquiry-based practice are a commitment to errantry–the intentional practice of wandering–and an obsession with unfixability and ephemerality, in the physical, metaphysical, and spiritual worlds.

Walking is an important part of my research. I started walking in the spring of 2020 and haven’t stopped. Walking as an aesthetic practice has become fundamental to how I interact with, conceive of, and understand the world. I walk seven or eight miles a day on average, and on December 4th, 2022, I reached 1000 consecutive days and close to 7500 miles of daily walking.

In August 2022, I started the MFA program in Studio Art at the University of North Carolina–Greensboro.
