Andrew ‘Android’ Jones is a digital artist from Colorado who uses various software programs to recreate his visionary experiences. For him, his art is a kind of spiritual endeavour. He says:
I’ve seen things in this life that I am incapable of translating into words. In my practice I have visited realms where the imagination ends, and the terrifying beauty of infinity unfolds over and over again.
If I could distill into words exactly what motivates me to create the art that I make than it would not be worth making it. Instead I have chosen the Pen.
Honestly I don’t know why I make this art, or what compels me to keep creating it; it’s a mystery I intend to pursue for the rest of my life, and each image brings me closer to the Ultimate Truth.
Android Jones has also collaborated with electronic artist Tipper – his artwork was used as the album cover for Forward Escape, and he has created mind-bending, real-time visual shows for some of Tipper’s sets.
