Jason Bruges is a multidisciplinary artist and designer, based in London. He is internationally renowned as a pioneer of the hybrid space between art, architecture, and technology. A master of light and kinetic art, he uses a high-tech, mixed-media palette to explore spectacle, time-based interventions, and dynamic immersive experiences. Jason studied architecture at the Bartlett (UCL, London), then worked at Foster + Partners and Imagination. In 2002, he set up Jason Bruges Studio where he works with a talented team to deliver integrated public art projects world-wide.
Through intervening in the urban environment, Jason Bruges Studio produces moments of theatre that weave a sense of magic into the fabric of a place. Bespoke and site-specific, each project explores interrelationships between people, data, nature and technology. Telling Stories and creating conversations, the artworks bring people together to ultimately surprise, delight and stir the imagination. Some of the Studio’s most celebrated work includes: The Constant Gardeners, a robotic Zen garden created to coincide with the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Digital Ornithology, an installation emulating a murmuration of birds for the Wadden Sea Centre in Denmark, and Shadow Wall, an interactive digital canvas located in Wembley Park.
For a number of years’, the Studio has used virtual reality to illustrate how artworks will look once installed on site. Taking this one step further, the team has more recently started to build models in augmented reality. Rather than visualising artworks within a virtual world, the team can travel to site and see a 4D visualisation of the artwork in its live location. This has proven to be a great tool for communicating ideas with clients and for spotting any issues that might otherwise be missed on drawings and digital models. The digital twin can also be broadcast to an online audience widening the reach to people who are unable to view the work in person.
