RSPACE PRESENT: A MULTIMEDIA EXHIBITION THAT EXPLORES AUTISTIC THINKING AND ITS VALUE BY JON ADAMS
RSpace present a multimedia exhibition that explores autistic thinking and its value.
The artist Jon Adams describes Asperger syndrome as both a gift and a disability and he explores that by presenting the results of two recent projects ’Look About’ a twoyear mapping and collecting project in response to the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad and ‘KS’ a project commissioned after being identified by Professor Simon Baron Cohen as a natural systemizer (due to ‘Look About’). This creatively driven, multilayered project weaves together science and art, digital and analogue, and Jon’s autobiographical experiences.
International Artist Jon Adams’ fine art practice draws upon a wide range of materials and processes which include photography, video, sound recording and digital sound and visual manipulation, 3D installations, traditional sculpture and illustration.
Jon is currently a Research Fellow in Disability Arts within the Faculty of CCi at the University of Portsmouth.
His work includes themes of hidden disability and positive dyslexia and Asperger’s awareness combined with a subversive or geological context.
