Brock Jensen left his hometown at the age of eighteen; living as a vagabond for six years throughout the Rocky Mountains, Central Cascades, and Southern Mexico, Jensen experienced the simplicities of life outside public bureaucracy and rigid social standards. This nomadic lifestyle continues to be a major influence for him as he creates ritualistic performances exploring his own mental and physical capacity for enduring pain, suffering, isolation and physical exertion. His work encompasses photography, film, sculpture and drawing, while incorporating found locations and materials, both natural and industrial, in combination with the human body and man-made objects. Utilizing a wide variety of techniques Jensen addresses mans feral nature, while depicting issues of individual, communal, and environmental identity coinciding with the primordial need for power, dominance, and sex.
