Jeffrey Wells’ work stems from wanting to explore and exploit the optical phenomenon that happens to us while doing something as simple as staring at a white wall. His video projections are participatory performances that use light, time and optics to create an element of surprise. For Seeing While Seeing, Wells will create a series of new, site-specific, projected works that mimic a variety of visual phenomena from after-effects and aura to color and shape-shifts–the room will literally come alive with his animated projections. Each work makes you question whether what you see is real or is just an animated effect.

Wells received his M.F.A from UCLA in 2006, and lives and works in Joshua Tree, California.
