Jaygo Bloom is a digital performer and educator, whose professional practice is informed by over a decade of international digital art and design practice.

Since the early 2000s, Jaygo has been pushing the boundaries of digital design and experiential practice, disrupting and rethinking his approach to media in the production of cinematic, immersive, audiovisual experiences.

Recently Jaygo has been creating NFTs responding to the current technological hype-cycle and its influence over contemporary culture, fascinated by the NFT scene, its historical roots and myths of authenticity and scarcity.

A regular performer alongside the live events and music industry, Jaygo has held partnerships with artists and organisations including Franz Ferdinand, Philip Glass, Luke Slater, Festival Forte in Portugal, Time Warp in Brazil, Pixelazo in Colombia, Dekmantel in Amsterdam, Berghain in Berlin, Amnesia in Ibiza, AgeHa in Tokyo, The Southbank Centre in London, The VoiceLab Orchestra in London, Dundee Contemporary Art Centre in Scotland and the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Scotland.

He joins LASALLE after a successful academic position in Brazil, where he spent the last five years designing and coordinating BA programs for a new Graduate Design School and UK accredited partner, The British School of Creative Arts, São Paulo.
