Spike Jones needs little introduction. For almost thirty years his visionary work across creative fields has continued to inspire us - from the award winning films, revolutionary music videos, skate films and photographs - Spike's touch is unmistakable. From Adaptation to Jackass and Beastie Boys to Björk, it seems there's nothing he can't make golden and now, with his involvement in Vice's new TV channel, Viceland, we're looking forward to a future full of even more of his work. 

Spike's foray into fashion has been remarkable too. His one act play for Opening Ceremony (in lieu of a runway) at NYFW last year, starred Elle Fanning and Katherine Keener and was an entirely original and thought provoking show that made headlines everywhere. Watching the behind-the-scenes footage gives a glimpse into the layers and level of thinking that weaves throughout Spike's catalogue.

Behind the scenes of 100% Lost Cotton, the one act play for Opening Ceremony.  

At this year's Vivid, Spike Jonze will speak as part of of the 'Game-Changers Talk' Series, with a focus on conversations with global creative industry leaders. It may change your life. 

VIVID Sydney runs 27 May to 18 June. To book tickets and for more info, visit the VIVID website.
