Last week, Android Jones, one of the electronic music scene’s most talented visual artists, encountered a heartbreaking tragedy – the loss of all his work. He arrived at his studio to find it engulfed in flames, and everything inside, including his tools, sketchbooks, art books, computers, and hard drives, was destroyed. In a detailed message on his social media, he expressed his sorrow and the significance the space held, as it was built by his father who passed away in 2013.
Jones reached out to his fans for help and set up a GoFundMe with a goal of $250,000 to rebuild his creative space and support his family and team.His supporters responded with an incredible show of love, and the goal was met within a week of the devastating fire.
After the overwhelming support, he posted a video with his wife, expressing his gratitude. He also shared a new video where he spoke optimistically about the future of his project.
Android Jones has created visuals for a variety of artists, including Tipper, CloZee, and The Grateful Dead. He is also known for his VJ work that utilizes the virtual reality-based software MicrodoseVR, which you can get a brief idea of in this video. His artwork can be viewed on his website.
The electronic music scene has been moved by the immense support for Android Jones, and his fans have been inspired by his courage to move forward. He has demonstrated that, together, we can create a new meaning, envision, and build a story and a space that serves a greater mission, and one that receives and projects a greater love.
