With a Bachelor’s in Design | Media Arts, a Minor in Latin from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a Master of Fine Arts in New Media from Paris College of Art, Jono’s work has been shown at international festivals including TED, Sundance, Tribeca Film Festival, SIGGRAPH, and the Japan Media Arts Festival. His commitment to Visual Music has sparked collaborations with musicians including applications with Lullatone, a live performance with Nosaj Thing, and interactive music videos for the likes of Matthew Dear, the Chemical Brothers, and Kimbra. He is currently a member of NEW INC, the New Museum’s art, design, and technology incubator.
To develop his projects, Jono writes custom software and actively participates in open source communities. He shares his own libraries such as Two.js, the event driven two-dimensional drawing interface for the web. This library and many others are freely available and actively maintained to help promote the creative expression of individuals worldwide.
