The artist Jason Borders , who currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon, has created an impressive series entitled “Bones – Bones” in carving animal bones, mostly skulls with abstract patterns whose designs do not plan, he said, are the result of repetition, rhythm and consistency.
My job is a form of self-hypnosis. It is a way to turn off the cognitive thinking and just react. It is very meditative. It is escapism, but in a sense a little, is a form of hyper-existence purely in the moment. In this way, work becomes a method of overcoming fears. That said, much of what I do involves a familiarity with death. My belief is that, as painful as it may be, looking death directly helps to live your life with purpose and intent. In this sense, the work I do goes into a place where the lines between life, death, fantasy and reality are blurred.
