The Jumpshadow Collective was established in 2007 to promote the perspective of emergent designers. The Collective has designed and installed several public art projects from discarded materials to provoke conversation about the value of what we throw away. Past projects include Neural Alley, an interactive mural comprised of painted wooden blocks; CHIME, an immersive wind chime made from discarded beer bottles; and Hydro+ Logic, a furniture installation made from discarded plastic water bottles.

Lead collaborator, Jennifer Hiser, holds a bachelor degree in Architecture from California Polytechnic State University and a Master in City Planning degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is interested in the intersection of design and social change with a particular focus on issues of public health and environmental justice. She believes artistic inquiry can help us better understand the realities of place, inspire community dialogue, and serve as a tool for a more just and sustainable future. She is currently exploring the challenges associated with waste management in different contexts to identify opportunities for local, inclusive, and sustainable workforce develoipment.
