Jeremy J Quinn, Michele Jaquis and Mark Ericson open their Chinatown art and design studio to the public.
Jeremy J. Quinn is a multidisciplinary artist and architect based in Chinatown, Los Angeles. He runs his own architectural office, JJQAD, and creates artwork across diverse media, often combining sculpture, video and sound into installations. His works have explored representation of landscape, spatial interaction with sound, conditions of communication between people, and the interrogation of urban conditions and architectural space.
Michele Jaquis is an interdisciplinary artist and educator who combines strategies of conceptual art, documentary and social practice to examine the complexities within personal and social relationships, identity, language and communication, resulting in a range of image-based, object-based, time-based and engagement-based projects.
Mark Ericson’s research is centered on the potential for seemingly defunct techniques of drawing to interrogate digital tools. In particular, he reconstructed the stereotomic drawings contained in Guarino Guarini’s Architettura civile (1737) and produced a manual that breaks down the process into a set of legible steps and principles. Mark is currently working on translating the techniques of Guarino Guarini into automated processes that can incorporate time and variation into the principles contained within his original drawings.
Our studio is located on Jung Jing Road, a pedestrian street between Broadway and Hill, near the Bruce Lee Statue in Chinatown. Look for the JJQAD sign next to our door.
