Join us for an engaging talk with Tom Jessen about his works in the 2020 Biennial and the role that chance and game-theory play in his creative process. The livestream will continue as he plays the game he’s invented to rearrange his multimedia work, Thomas.
Made of plastic toy tracks and acrylic paint, the piece is an interactive game where the form is determined by the roll of dice. It can be played with one or multiple players.
Jessen’s (Temple, ME) work features everyday discarded objects that have a personal connection to his life and environment. Though his use of recycled and repurposed materials is tied to environmental concerns, they also act as an invitation to experience playfulness, humor, and irreverence. He finds a connection between the process of making art and game theory as a means to keep the creative experience mysterious and engaging.
