Jones feeds much of it through his Epson 2200 printer, which has a "flat feed" that can accommodate unusual materials such as plywood, cloth, or the Hollander's mat. He gets a huge kick out of experimentation, confessing he's been tempted to feed "rocks and aluminum" through the apparently indestructible printer.

His eye-catching assemblage Previews of Coming Attractions contains a blurred sepia scene from the movie To Kill a Mockingbird showing Boo Radley and Scout on a porch swing, digitally printed on a tiled set of twenty rectangular Shrinky Dinks. Beneath the scene is a box containing everyday objects, sealed in clear plastic wood preservative, that allude to key moments in the film. The title is an inside joke: Jones's upcoming show, also at WSG, will be a series of similar movie-inspired artworks.
