Biography

Jed Lind’s projects are based on his preoccupations with navigation and the passing of time—he describes his overarching goals as “[getting] at the infinite or the sublime” while also “slowing things down.” His photographs, sculptures, and installations are populated with nautical vessels and vehicles, though they are not always immediately recognizable. Several of his better-known series are based on legendary works by other artists or writers, such as performance artist Bas Jan Ader’s ill-fated boat trip, Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic architecture, and J. G. Ballard’s dystopian novel Concrete Island (1974). More recently, Lind has been working on an abstract photographic series in which he captures the rotations of stars using prolonged exposures.
