Slowly, it transitions from a macroscopic view Shooting downward into a microscopic ether that envelops all of humanity through the analysis of the individual.  He has been molding this latter concept as a more permanent motif for the last four years. In order to gain such a microscopic view into the human mind, Jake Adams uses the idea of "the interview" to engage in mundane every day discourse with an individual. Through this performance he is able to sift through all of the feelings that were present in the individuals reflection of a particular day or week. By using his "Map of emotional recovery through FTC" He can correspond the feelings relayed to him by the individual to their proper location on the map. This template or map is a large grid categorized in three separate parts that act as one. Each section has its own set of unique feelings that relate to its specific category. i.e. He designates Forms to be in the category of SPACES. He places Textures in the MOODS section, and Colors mingle within the EMOTIONS category. By utilizing this template, Jake Adams is able to visually represent a portrait of human consciousness in accordance with specific times and dates. Although the early work is very disparate from his present themes, they have been used as a crucial foundation to give rise to the potent painted forms he constructs today through the use of countless mediums.
