My bachelor graduation project „New York Biotopes“ deals with abstract plants and creatures, which change their forms because of insufficient living space and adapt themselves to the surroundings of the metropolis New York City. A type of metamorphosis, where the newly developed vegetation assimilates elements of the city and makes them useful for their own purposes. These creatures and plants, partly mechanical, partly organically in appearance, spread more and more over the city and fill it up with life.
My idea was to create a film, that fills up the metropolis New York with vegetation, that adapts to the straightness of the technology and the given situation. This happens through the assimilation of structures and forms. These biotopes are shaped by the existing living environment, but in turn also shape the newly developed living environment by their presence. In other words, a symbiotically coexistence begins.
A year on since ND5 (Ninety Degrees 5) was formed and Southwest Light is nearing completion.
South West Light is a collective of five creatives journey through Australia's Southwest photographing this spectacular region to share its wonders to a worldwide audience.
The association of these photographers was born from the origins of 'The Pilbara Project', an ongoing journey through Western Australia's North West mining region, facilitated and curated by FORM in Perth. It was because of this opportunity the five creatives, Les Walkling, Tony Hewitt, Peter Eastway, Christian Fletcher, and Michael Fletcher felt compelled to continue the connection they made whilst traveling the Pilbara.
Australia's South West region is a pristine environment of forests, beaches, farmland, and river systems. The diversity of landscapes and stark contrast to the Pilbara made it a desirable choice to photograph. Along the way we invited great photographer and friend, Nick Rains to join us as a guest photographer.
As Southwest Light comes to fruition the next phase of its evolvement has started, being the post production of many images. Follow our journey at nd5.com.au
Australia's Southwest along with Tourism Western Australia have been fundamental in facilitating this journey. Without their ongoing support this expedition have' not 'of eventuated.
As the shadow of night falls across the American West a lone man begins his work. Far from the confines, calamity, and culture of society, multimedia artist and storyteller Jeff Frost sifts through the visual dregs of places and people who once were.
Combining still and time-lapse photography with motion, music, and art, Frost reveals a world rarely seen. Rooted in science and the exploration of space, Frost’s work explodes with light, fire, and sound, utilizing 2D and 3D perspective, leading the viewer on a unique visual journey through worlds both real and imagined.

"Frost's video footage of the desert and abandoned houses in the American Southwest is certainly stunning in its own right, but it was his incorporation of three perspective-bending optical illusions — and his use of time-lapse as a medium to expose the reality behind those illusions — that really sold us."
"...a glimpse of a world without limits."

"[Flawed Symmetry of Prediction] is a monumental thing."
- Jeff Dunas, Palm Springs Photo Festival co-founder
"Very creative and sick."
- Tom Lowe, Astronomy Photographer of the Year
"Jeff Frost shows us the future of the 21st century book in his audio and visual feast, "Flawed Symmetry."
- Eileen Gittins, Blurb Books CEO
"Jeff Frost is the author of this new video made frame called Flawed Prediction of Symmetry. She asked him several months of work plans, and melds contemplative and discrete graphics interventions."
