For more than twenty-five years, Kristin Jones has created work for the public domain in partnership with Andrew Ginzel, who has created a diverse range of site-specific works throughout the world for museums, galleries, architectural spaces, and performance.

Jones maintains both studio and public practices, working across disciplines to create site-specific, time-based projects that frame natural phenomena against the built environment. Her installations, works on paper, and time-lapse photography have been exhibited internationally. A fundamental sense of wonder at the mystery of the world motivates Jones to construct contemplative work aimed at magnifying the sense of place and present.

Jones and Ginzel’s large-scale works in Manhattan include Metronome on Union Square and Oculus throughout the Chambers Street–World Trade Center subway station. They have also had commissions in Boulder, Chicago, Hoboken, Milwaukee, Orlando, Portland, and Philadelphia, as well as several other works for the City of New York. Their installations have been created for a wide range of museums and non-profit venues internationally, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Kunsthalle in Basel, and the Whitney Museum at Phillip Morris.
