‘In this space, watch the works evolve and mutate in an explosive way, leaking on to the walls and extending its reach into new grounds as Jakob performs his own brand of live art works to soundscapes and music composed specially for the exhibition by Joe Gilder. Using found canvases of wood, and other abandoned materials, Jakob creates an organic outlook on modern society in this personal and though provoking exhibition.

Watch the gallery space transform into a canvas as Jakob performs live art on its walls throughout the day.’

The pictures below are of the stages and finished piece at the Upfest festival and tomorrow when ive actually had time to sleep and process i will post pictures of the piece that i did and the very grand and painfully friendly Rock & Bowl Hostal…  … . . ///. / . . cheers guys its been surreal . . ././ .
