Keiken + George Jasper Stone


Keiken are a collaborative practice, co-founded by artists Tanya Cruz, Hana Omori and Isabel Ramos in 2015, who frequently work with multiple collaborators. Based between London and Berlin, they come from mixed diasporic backgrounds (Mexican/Japanese/European/Jewish). Keiken, the Japanese word for experience, create speculative worlds, using moving-image, CGI, gaming software, installation, virtual and augmented reality, programming and performance to merge the physical and digital. Their work simulates new structures and ways of existing, exploring how societal introjection governs the way we feel, think and perceive.

George Jasper Stone is a digital artist based in London, UK. Their practice is often collaboratively based, working with musicians, artists, live performance, contemporary dance, set design, photography, installation, fashion print, VFX and graphic design.

They propose alternative virtual spaces which often call on participation into worlds that interlink fantasy and reality. Their work is often characterised by constructing digital scenes which transcode data from physical environments to digital experiences. They aim to create a dialogue to accessible, detailed and fantastical semiotics.

Their latest collaborative film works include; Feel My Metaverse (2019) exhibited at transmediale 2020 End to End at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; How to Make a Paradise, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt (2020); Feel(s) 360 Image Behaviour, ICA London; and Jerwood Art’s Collaborate!, Jerwood Space, London (2019); IFSR (2020) exhibited at Sensus Light and Dark, Monom Gallery, Berlin (2020).
