Summer 2018 Contest Winners
For over a decade, the ONE Design Contest has given artists and advocates a platform to express their views on sexual health. Winning designs are featured on ONE’s signature, round condom wrappers. ONE will also donate a total of 50,000 condoms to the artists’ health organizations of choice.
A combination of voting by ONE staff and a panel of guest judges determines the Top 50 Finalist designs, which are then voted on by the public. Public Voting helps determine the Grand Prize Winner, Runner-Up Winner and 8 Honorable Mentions.

JASON SIDNEY SANFORD
Jason Sidney Sanford is an artist working at the intersection of sound, sculpture, and performance. Since 1994, he has been creating sculptural musical instruments and using them to perform original compositions in the context of his band, Neptune. Neptune has released nine full-length LPs, as well as many other singles and EPs, and has toured internationally numerous times. Neptune’s most recent releases — “Silent Partner” and “MSG RCVD” — are available from Northern Spy Records.In 2013, Sanford co-founded another band — E — which also has toured internationally. In E, Sanford continues to play his self-made instruments alongside the more traditional instrumentation of veteran rock musicians Thalia Zedek (electric guitar) and Gavin McCarthy (drums). E has released 2 LPs — their self-titled, debut record (2016) and “Negative Work” (2018). Both albums are available from Thrill Jockey Records.Another avenue of Sanford’s artistic inquiry is collaborating with the dance/movement artist Liz Roncka to form a sound/dance collaborative known as Sliver Foxes. Sanford and Roncka have worked together since 2011 to dissolve traditional boundaries between dancer and musician, and now typically perform in sonically-activated installation scenarios where all members of the troupe are responsible both for movement (which generates sound) and for sound production (which informs movement).Sanford’s work with his different ensembles is varied in terms of “musicality," but always investigates the physical nature of sound as essentially somatic in its generation. He earned a bachelor’s degree in fine arts (with a concentration in sculpture) from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and a master's degree in fine arts from the Studio for Interrelated Media at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston.j-s-sanford.com
