Biography

Initially configured by a visceral reaction to both the sociopolitical and meteorological climate of late 1980s to early 2000s coastal Florida, Jacob Winchester, insofar as he is known at the moment of this blurb's birth and perhaps more importantly has been known in the rememberable past — is an assemblage of quarks which formats ideas, objects🕯️, and images of all sorts through adjusting the experienceable universe into other forms of itself in an effort for it to best represent his sentimental attachment to the mirage of individuated existence.

He would have liked the above blurb to involve a textural element, although it technically does if you think about it for a long time.


🕯️For the purposes of this biographical brief, "objects" will constitute all structures or organizations of matter, without conceivable limit, regardless of their traditionally definable or attributable features. This includes: sounds, plasmas, gases, liquids, solids, and liquid-solid hybrids, such as mud, among others. It also includes metallurgical amalgams, including those used for the purposes of dentistry, foil, or reflective mirror coatings from the 19th and early 20th century.
