About JASON SHO GREEN (New York, b. Japan): 

Seamlessly blending a hybrid education which includes undergraduate studies in autonomous robotics and digital embedded systems at the University of Washington and a MFA degree in painting from the New York Academy of Art, JASON SHO GREEN’s work in Reveries evolved from drawings of a glorious city after ruin. He delves into a new world from the leftovers of human behavior, imagining what can be done with what is left behind. His robotic, electricity-powered installation explores an ecosystem built from found objects, spare motors, and wires that are constantly in flux.
