In 2012, Jason was selected and invited to attend the Boisbuchet Products of Design Program in Boisbuchet, France, to study with world-renowned industrial designers and create non-constructive design to improve systems and design for environmental sustainability.
Designing is a responsibility and as an artist one should share their designs with the world. We have senses that are able to absorb the world around us and as an artist I would like to entertain all of these 5 senses. For this reason I have not settled on a particular medium. My work is constantly evolving, just as I am.
