The College of Architecture is excited to announce internationally renowned designer Jason Bruges, founder of Jason Bruges Studio, known as a pioneer in the space between art, architecture, technology and interactive design, will be giving the first Hyde lecture of the season titled “An Insight into Jason Bruges Studios” at 4 p.m., September 24th via Zoom Webinar. https://unl.zoom.us/j/97934400361
Bruges is a multidisciplinary artist, based in London. A master of light and kinetic art, he uses a high-tech, mixed-media palette to explore spectacle, time-based interventions and dynamic immersive experiences. His artworks are moments of theatre that transform in response to their surroundings and connect people with their environments.
For this lecture, Bruges presents a range of his projects including some of his most recent investigations into urban scale robotic interventions. He provides insight into the context for his work, describing his motivations to create moments of theatre that engage people with their environments. Guiding us through his development process, and methods for iterating and testing, he describes the make-up of his multidisciplinary team and explains how this adds to the melting pot of successful collaboration. Unpicking his avenues of inspiration, Bruges unearths his focus for the future and his endeavors to foster active participation and positive change through his art.
