In his artistic work, Jay Gard investigates things, items, and objects which man has been producing over thousands of years. For over a decade, Jay Gard has incessantly been building sculptures, items, and objects. In doing so, he investigates how his form language is changing through virtual images and computer design. The shapes of his objects are reminiscent of the vector principle of computer graphics. His objects, often inspired by architecture, play with function, mimicking or hiding it. Jay Gard thereby takes into account the collective visual memory of the internet generation, for which contradictions such as surface and content, sham and authenticity, real and virtual world are no longer of any significance. Jay Gard does not program; he builds this world with saw, angle grinder, and electric screwdriver. He often works with colored strips. For Jay Gard, they are the simplest image of what humans perceive: landscape, horizon, sky.
