Jason Lazarus is an artist exploring vision and visibility. His work includes a range of fluid methodologies: original, found and appropriated images, text-as-image, animated GIFs, photo-derived sculptures made collaboratively with the public, pigment-inks-as-image, live archives, and public submission repositories among others. This expanded photographic practice seeks new approaches of inquiry, embodiment, and bearing witness through both individual and collective imaging. Continuing values of vision and visibility, Lazarus also organizes PDF-OBJECTS, an itinerant sculpture-text repository; Coco Hunday, an alternative exhibition space in Tampa, FL; is a Co-Founder of #firstdayfirstimage, and is Co-Founder of Chicago Artist Writers, a platform that invites artists and art workers to write traditional and experimental criticism with a focus on under-represented arts programming in Chicago. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor of Art and Art History at the University of South Florida.
