ARTIST PROFILE: JEROME FLINDERS
Jerome Flinders is a French/British Artist and Architect living and working in London. He has been producing Construction Information for potential new civilisations in the suburbs since his childhood in Paris's 6th arrondissement. He recently worked for artist sculptor Charles Avery where he assisted in the perspectival representation of a fictional society called The Islanders, loosely based on the wet Scottish land of Mull.
Jerome is paid to spend his time planning immaculate infrastructures for isolated communities living in expansive landscapes. His architecture is designed for people living far enough from the city to organise themselves by eccentric and arbitrary rules. It aims to be better suited to the human physiognomy than Fordian society, and allies itself more closely to the ecstasy of the discobolus and the writings of Homer than economist articles (although that is a good magazine). He currently works for a Central-London architecture practice, he advises an architectural charity (S-T-O-R-E) and was hired to teach architecture students at Central Saint Martin's about drawing systems and concepts of architectural representation. Jerome is a Champion of positive change through the built environment.
