Touching on themes as personal as the loss of a loved one, to investigating a dying ecosystem, in this talk Tomiko will discuss her process and approach through several projects.
Jones’ project Hatsubon is a memorial exhibition drawing from cultural tradition in film photography, video and sculpture. Her current research, These Grand Places, is a socially-engaged photographic project that explores public lands as national identity, investigating the construct of ownership in how the west was made, identified and conquered.
Uniting technology from digital capture to 19th century processes, she works interchangeably across the rich history of the photographic medium, whether creating an archival inkjet print on silk or a time-based cyanotype made on site using source water and found objects.
Tomiko Jones’ photography and multidisciplinary installations explore social, cultural and geopolitical transitions, considering the twin crises of too much and too little in the age of climate change.
