Description of the Artwork “Marking Time #3”

Marking Time is a series of readymades, found on the street. Rust, wear and tear and defacement have all added to the texture of the materials and to the narrative behind them. The series reflects JakBox’s wider interest in the urban environment. Their input into these pieces is in the selection of the objects, based purely on textural interest. Each suggests visual connotations to styles of artwork - some may look like abstract paintings, others like landscapes. By giving the objects a new purpose, by reimagining and reassembling them, JakBox asks the viewer to reconsider them in this new context. We are made to see them afresh, to make different associations and interpretations of these objects, once discarded as trash on the urban landscape.

About the artist
Simon Williams

Simon Williams, United Kingdom

JakBox is the brainchild of Simon Williams. Born in a Camden coffee shop in 2013, it functions as a “creative lab”. The ideas tested there have been accumulated over more than three decades, from the years of Simon’s architecture studies, which saw his foray into experimental performance art and award-winning pavement art, to his development and management of the long-established and highly respected graphic design studio, Feast Creative. JakBox’s first four years have been very productive. Many ideas have been mixed in the experimental pots and different processes tested. Each strand of work has had its own identity, defined by the process which has formed it; all have shared the mission of bringing to the world at large the ability to see what is all around them, but rarely noticed. It seems that nothing which exists in time and space is exempt from his curious examination, scrutiny and entertaining representation. Some of the presentations are brave, none is boring; some are thought-provoking or disturbing, none is without impact on the viewer. The outcomes of Simon’s experiments with process are often, completely accidentally, quite beautiful; all are intriguing. Similarly joyful are the products of his curiosity and adventurous use of the most unlikely materials. In JakBox, he is establishing his home in the art world.
