The Electro-Mineralist Digital Art of Android Jones
Android Jones is at the forefront of the Electro-Mineralist art movement, a wave of artists whose medium is electricity and their hardware and tools are forged from mining elements found deep inside the earth. Android’s body of work aims to emphasize creativity as the foundation of consciousness and an agent of social change. As an Electro-Mineralist, Android builds on the technical developments of past centuries in art history while pushing the boundaries of the imagination with new technologies and media forms. Moving beyond the traditional organic vegetable and animal technologies of pencils, ink, and brushes, Android develops latent possibilities within software programs such as Painter, Photoshop, ZBrush, and Alchemy, discovering new combinations and uses for tools that exceed the original intentions of their programmers.
