STUDIO






10th Floor Studio is a conceptual art studio operated by Jerome Tavé and Kyle Lawson.


We focus on creating works that envision futures we want to see and build together.


ORIGINS


Jerome and Kyle met in 2008 while attending Savannah College of Art and Design.

Jerome Tavé (he/him) is an artist with a background in design and has worked as an interaction designer for a variety of companies and design groups, in addition to teaching in the Web & New Media program at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Over the last 5 years, Jerome has incorporated fungi as a central part of his work. By experimenting with materials, and presenting them in new ways, Jerome hopes to explore narratives for new futures, while creating awareness and mindfulness around ecology.

Kyle Lawson (he/they) is an artist and designer exploring intersections of regenerative agriculture, ecosystem restoration, and conceptual art. Kyle is also the co-creator and Technical and Creative Director of Soil Centric, a not-for-profit connecting people to land based climate action. Kyle is a certified sheep shearer and lover of natural fiber.
