Luke Jerram

Luke Jerram’s multidisciplinary practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations, live arts projects and gifts. Since his professional career as an artist began in 1997 Luke has created a number of extraordinary art projects which excite and inspire people around him. Currently working with a number of established arts institutions and organisations in the UK, new complex and ambitious arts projects are currently being developed.

Jerram’s ongoing research of perception is fuelled by the fact that he is colour-blind. He studies the qualities of space and perception in extreme locations, from the freezing forests of Lapland to the sand dunes of the Sahara desert. New ways of seeing and new artworks emerge from these research field trips. Works such as ‘Retinal Memory Volume’, ‘Sky Orchestra’ and his glass virus sculptures have emerged from Jerram exploring the edges of perception.

He has quite an extensive portfolio site with a large selection of the varied projects he has worked on. Some of my favourites are linked below:
