Figure Ground/LV21: Jon Adams

Jon Adams is an original member of Figure Ground and is Artist in Residence for the University of Portsmouth. As with many of the Figure Ground installations on LV21, sound was the preferred media; Jon’s mum used to live in Gillingham, and he relayed radio recordings of her fascinating wartime memories of nearby Skinner Street and the Pier.


As a lead artist for Dysarticulate 2, Jon is encouraging the community to make a field of flags (when I say field ... it could be a window box, a roundabout or a beach – it’s your choice!) culminating in an Open Weekend on 22nd -24th July, the start of the 12 month countdown to the 2012 London Olympics. To find out how you can be involved as an individual or part of a group, visit the website here.
