By compiling and reconfiguring these seemingly random manifestations of popular culture, he unearths uncanny patterns and meaningful structures lurking within the visual and statistical chaos that surrounds us. The captivating photographs, videos, and multimedia installations that he generates from such ubiquitous sources provide us with fresh perspectives on our everyday environment. CURRENTS: Jason Salavon surveys the artist's career to date, while tracing his process in creating a new body of work for his exhibition at the Columbus Museum of Art.
