Jamie Cooper

Working across a variety of mediums, Jamie Cooper creates immersive environments that mix sculptural objects with light. In the Future Relic series, he uses humour and language as mechanisms to provoke deeper critical engagement.

Cooper uses creative writing to draw from a blend of source material such as science fiction films, sociopolitical concerns and philosophical ideas to construct theoretical “other places” from which new artworks can be generated.

Artificial lights are often used to create uncanny objects that resemble cultural artefacts from the real world, invoking an alternative “art” reality.
