[Not a disabled artist] Jay navigates a disabling society making work about ableism, and their lived experience with psychosis/schizophrenia, autism, and brain damage caused by the treatments for these conditions. Working within these areas taught Jay to “think outside of the box” as people who are ignored in society have no platform for their message. The artist questions where the value in art lies, and utilises dissemination to increase the cultural and societal worth of an artwork and its message.
