Open Field: Jamie Jenkinson

Artist-in-residence at The Cass.

Jamie Jenkinson

Dates: 11 November - 16 December

Introductory talk: Thursday 16 November, time and location tba.
Closing event: Thursday 14 December, time and location tba.

During my time at The Cass I’ll be using the space to experiment with a series of new optical and digital aberration installations. Alongside this I’ll be making videos based on the new Cass building, its roof terrace and surrounding architecture. 


I mainly make videos on my phone. This is the basis of my practice based PhD at Lancaster University researching materialism in popular video technology; the framework of my teaching in Visual Communication at the Royal College of Art; and the inspiration for my writing and programming on artist film and video. 

Please contact Ben Cain ( for further details.
