Graphite Patterns

29 February 2016

You might remember a post from last year about our experiments with mud, and creating patterns on paper that look like veins and landscapes.

Changing Rooms

25 February 2016

Over the past few weeks, the JakBox team have been very busy in the studio transforming the space into a gallery!

Peeling Pavements

2 December 2015

As of late, JakBox have made some extreme progression in the field of molding.

The large scaled silicones we have been setting on the streets of Camden have really begun taking shape, and what’s more, taking prints. 

Tyres

2 November 2015

Tyres have a specific design to enhance their performance. Grip, durability, and simplicity in appearance are key to the success of its original purpose. The diagonal slices that make them road-worthy and the beastly muscle that is formed by the rubber, are just two qualities JakBox has taken to break down and re-brief.

Mud

10 August 2015

There’s been a range of media being used in the studio as of late, mud, glue and water being one of the latest conglomerations...

Hands

30 July 2015

So you may be wondering where we’re going with all these posts on our social media about the human body, particularly the hands...

Pavement Rubbings

6 July 2015

We’ve been busy in the JakBox studio recently! The Points of View project is almost complete and there are many new concepts and explorations that we’ve been working on.

One of these is an attempt to extract the texture and feel of the pavements into an object. We started off with doing simple rubbings using paper and crayons, however quickly realised that we wanted the works to have more life, more tactility…

Mud Bath

7 May 2015

As well as Points of View, something else we’ve been busy working on in the studio is making patterns with mud (yes, it is as fun as it sounds!) Inspired by the patterns of sediment that remain in the tub after having a muddy bath, we have tried to recreate this intriguing effect on paper.

What Do Artists Do All Day?

28 April 2015

So what do artists actually do all day, some think we just sit around thinking, dreaming & being ‘conceptual’. But oh, how wrong there are! Here at JakBox we are busy busy researching, making, creating & discussing (& doing our fair share of thinking).

Investigating Camden Town through a creative lens

Peculiarities of the mundane become elements of the artist’s canvas.
