Jon Rubin is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work explores the social dynamics of public places and the idiosyncrasies of individual and group behavior. His solo and collaborative projects include creating a game show for ideas, opening a fake store in an indoor shopping mall, starting a restaurant that secretly runs via takeout from its double across the street, broadcasting an office's telephone conversations through a talking piano and developing a free nomadic art school. He has exhibited video, drawings, installations and public projects internationally, including at The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporaneo (Mexico), The Rooseum (Sweden), Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen (Germany), Nemo Film Festival (Paris), as well as in backyards, living rooms and street corners. He is famous locally for his current project, the Waffle Shop.
