Statement

The work of Cassandra C. Jones is the result of collecting thousands of other people's snapshot photographs.  Obtained from every accessible source, she groups them together by remarkably like subject matter.  Jones then organizes, adjusts, deconstructs, and/or meticulously reconstructs these groupings to present them in ways [via video, print or installation] that tell stories about the power of photographic imagery in our snap happy, contemporary life styles.

Jones's photography-based work have shown in venues throughout America, Canada and Europe, such as: Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum in CA; John Michael Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, WI; Drake Hotel in Toronto, Canada; and Fachhochschule Schwäbisch Hall in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany.  Since 2004 she has been invited to be in over 25 experimental film/video exhibitions, festivals and tours for her found photography animations called “Snap Motion Re-Animations” including: Bayannale in San Francisco, CA; TBA Festival at the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art in OR; and Dallas Film Festival’s Texas Tour (museums state wide).  In 2005 she received a Vira I. Heinz Endowment Fellowship for her time in residence at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts.  And in 2007 she was one of 5 New York artists invited to do a residency and an exhibition that was held in conjunction with a Keith Haring Retrospective at the Egon Schiele Art Centrum in Český Krumlov, Czech Rebublic.
 
Cassandra C. Jones received her BFA from California Collage of Art in 1998 and her MFA from Carnegie Mellon University 2004. She currently lives and works between Brooklyn, NY and Ojai, CA.
