Jason Bruges
Location: Spur bridge
Installation: Jan. 2023

The cellular surface will be formed of a matrix of rings that will digitally represent live experiments happening within the campus. The rings take inspiration from the fields of Colorado, the use of circular patterns within data visualisations and the idea of an angular mechanism filling and emptying.

About the artist

Jason Bruges Studio has become internationally renowned for producing innovative installations, inventions, and ground-breaking works. This practice involves creating interactive spaces and surfaces that sit between the world of architecture, site specific installation art, and interaction design. Considered a pioneer of this hybrid in-between space, Jason has subsequently paved the way for a new genre of design studios, artists, and designer-makers.

Born on Sept. 15, 1972, Jason Bruges is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer based in London. Jason’s work blends architecture with interaction design and uses a high-tech, mixed media palette to explore spectacle, time-based interventions, and dynamic spatial experiences. He is passionate about creating site-specific pieces that engage people with their environments. Jason Bruges trained as an architect at Oxford Brookes University and the Bartlett School of Architecture, (UCL). He worked with Foster + Partners for three years before moving to Imagination to become a Senior Interaction Designer.

In 2002 Jason set up his own practice and now works with a talented team of people to develop and deliver interactive projects worldwide. The studio comprises of an experienced team of architects, engineers, industrial designers, and computational designers as well as specialists in electronics, programming, and project management.
