Jonathan Calm combines video, animation, sound, sculpture and drawing to create his own narratives around the architectural and psychological spaces of New York. Reflecting the complex, and often tense, process of gentrification in neighbourhoods such as Brooklyn, Calm1s work presents "fly-through" journeys around urban grids and their changing social infrastructures. His interest in how different systems interact is made visible in the visual parallel between urban grids and bar code graphics; an implicit commentary on how people are, in his view, 'pigeon-holed, automated and processed' in contemporary societies.
