  • Try Harder: An Homage to Location in Space and Time
    This work, compiled over the last 6 years, is an homage to location in Place and Time. Playing off Mikhail Bakhtin’s idea of the Chronotope in Literature. Jones places sculpture, as language, into conversation with this linguistic tool to speak about our current condition. In this work Jones does a personal analysis of navigation in general, moving across the Atlantic, being both with his family and apart from them, the role of teaching, and the issues of access highlighted by the Covid 19 pandemic. Aesthetically, it is a look at mapping, technological evolutions, tools of violence and survival, and the nuance of visibility and invisibility. Jones contrasts the notion of the “Ritual and the Sacred” and their location between private and public as they travel through Walter Benjamin’s “Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction” into bell hook’s “Art on my Mind.”
