My Creative Message

Message in a Bottle, is a conceptual, collaborative campaign that highlights the various initiatives kick started by kindred spirits and cherished friends who hail from a wide range of disciplines from media to science, a list that includes but is not limited to prominent: photographers, scientists, film makers, explorers, journalists, conservationists, ethologists, essayists, authors, musicians, divers, actors, anchors, artists, geospatialists and activists. They have each contributed a personal statement to the ‘Sea Speak’ movement as they second the premise of the work, which is to reach as many people as possible about as many ocean-related concerns of our time.

All these works are presently being showcased by the Sea Shepherd Gallery in Friday Harbor and aid the efforts of Paul Watson's Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

“Transparent Sea” is a conceptual, animated silent short that illustrates the chokehold of synthetic anthropogenic waste on ocean ecosystems. Plastics, a contemporary ubiquitous plague spawned by a consumer culture heavily dependent on disposables and packaging, have a devastating impact on oceanic flora and fauna. This narrative inventively unveils what man has done to marine habitats worldwide through the microcosm of a gradually declining reef.

About Asher Jay

Asher Jay is a designer, artist, writer and activist. She’s a staunch supporter of animal rights, wildlife conservation and sustainable development and she uses her fashion, art and writing to raise awareness. Through her extensive travels across the globe, a background in environmental science and her studies in art history, she has developed an aesthetic sensibility that is an amalgam of contrasting cultural influences. All her work is anchored by the deep commitment she harbors toward the realization of a collective future.

She was educated at Parsons the New School of Design, in New York where she received a BFA in Fashion Design and an AAS in Fashion Marketing. Shortly after graduating, she pursued a career working for various fashion houses in New York, which furnished her with the necessary experience to create her eponymous, exclusive, Pręt-a-Porter label. During her career she became passionate about textiles, printmaking and pattern design, fascinations that are frequently referenced in her fashion line and artworks.

Asher Jay cultivated a passion for painting during her formative years. Encouraged by her grandfather’s hand illustrated letters to her, in which he never failed to pictorially portray his endeavors and encounters, she began maintaining vibrant detailed art journals that documented her own life experiences.

Her most recent campaigns include the launch of her own country, The United Flotsam of Garbagea, (www.garbagea.com ) and the works she produced for the Academy Award winning documentary, The Cove, to raise awareness for the slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan. Asher Jay was awarded the USNC UN Women Design Star for 2012, and her graphic artwork is being used on the official ‘Walk To Stop Violence against Women’ tee-shirts by all the chapters. She is being published in Elizabeth Reznick’s upcoming book “Posters For the Digital Age” and the chosen work is also being showcased at Reznick’s MassArt exhibition. She has also been selected by RAW Artists to exhibit in Activate, an art collective, on Feb 23rd 2012.

Asher Jay’s work is carried and promoted by both Indie Walls and Art For Conservation.
