Behind the band at Luumi on Dec. 17, 2021, a Collab with Nathan Bayne was projected. Jones creates colourful digital paintings which are then animated by Bayne.

Curated by LNDMRK, Jones was recruited for a series of events at Galerie B in Griffintown . Octavious did a series of  live painting sessions where bystanders could see him working on several surfaces, including a bench, a lamp, pillows and an eight foot canvas. He also  built some of his signature Amphibious Readymade Creatures, which were  then exhibited from Nov. 27 - Dec. 27, 2021. 

Keep me in a Daydream

Inspired by Disney's The sorcerer's Apprentice (1940), Octavious collaborated with fellow film makers Julien Delannoy & Lucas Johnson in order create "Keep Me in a Daydream". This project was the reboot of previous short film that was written and direcetd by Octavious Jones; only to be tragically deleted and never seen. This re-imagination of Jones' vision is the sum of our team; Octavious built custom props,  Julien was a charismatic director, Lucas delivered precise post production and our actors performed perfectly.

Continuing his work with magnets, Octavious Jones collaborated with videographer Yohan Rebboh to demonstrate a vision for a  large scale interactive installation involving magnets & sand that follow people's feet. On the first floor there is metallic sand that sticks to people's feet, serving as distraction, inviting the people to play/dance. Up above there are moving magnets that mimic the people's path down below, leaving a drawing in the sand. Up the stairs, a person discovers that their feet were unknowingly impacting the installation.


Squirt your Feelings

On September 30, 2019, Octavious Jones collaborated with Emilie Smrtka to present an interactive social experiment involving coloured light, squirting paint & music. This project was made to map movements made when mindful of music. The people were asked to choose between three colours: red, yellow & green. Their colour selection then blindly determined which song they would interact with. Those who chose red interacted with Maggot Brain by Funkadelic, Those who prefer yellow  interacted with Melancholy by Louis Armstrong and the green group interacted with The W.A.N.D. by The Flaming Lips. The experiment was designed to encourage people to consider their unique relationship to the music and try to translate that into a gesture to be painted on a large surface. The final product demonstrates the difference that the music makes.
