“When I close my eyes, I see bright colors.”
Through Jayson Randall’s brilliant interplay of light and shadow in art, Forgotten Beacons illustrates the relationship between the useful and forgotten.
Like a beacon in the dark, his work expresses how discarded items call out as they are encountered by the viewer.
He preserves stories and gives new life to those forgotten through the use of interactive technology in his art.
Industrial materials are combined with interactive electronics as the viewer is engaged to participate in the functionality of the finished artwork.
Jayson Randall is an award-winning experimental artist who currently resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
As a recipient of the Director’s Award at the WHAM West Gallery in Surprise, Arizona, and the Best in Show Award at the Re-Purpose Competition and Exhibition in Clear Lake, Iowa, Randall designs and builds complex works of art that fuse technology with illusion.
Whether creating interactive electronic sculptures, making innovative films or attempting a novel method of painting, his work bridges the gap between art and science.
