Jacob Clayton is a UK based artist working with still and moving analogue image. Themes present in Clayton's work hang around repetition, motion, and entropy. Coming from the grey area between thought and expression, Clayton's work nullifies the illustrative and in place poses potential transformers, or sub-stations between these energies and every-day life.
