Vose Jones creates site specific/site responsive sculptural, sound and video installations constructed primarily from fiber, glass, and found organic and industrial materials. Themes of transition and exposure become a meditation on the relationship between absence and presence, privilege and injustice, silence and silencing. Material juxtapositions complement these themes and concepts: vulnerability/strength, enduring/ephemeral, decadence/poverty. The resulting sculptural installations' spatial and monochromatic material components invite moments for contemplation as well as opportunities for identification, questioning, and transgression of boundaries.
