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.
Sally Taylor is an artist and musician, and the founder of Consenses, an artistic game of “Telephone” using art as language to gain a broader understanding of the world around us. “The mission of Consenses,” she says, “is to create connection, understanding, and peace using art as a lens through which to see ourselves and others more clearly, compassionately, and expansively."For the past three years, she has engaged artists from across the globe working in every media and genre, and has brought them together by asking them to interpret one another’s artwork: A musician interprets a photograph, a dancer interprets the song, a painter interprets the dance, a perfumer interprets the painting, a poet interprets the perfume—and so on until all five senses are represented. During the process, each artist is given seven days to extract the essence of the artwork provided and to use it as a catalyst for their own creation, ultimately expressing their raw reactions in the language of their own medium. None of the artists is privy to the identities of the other participants. She adds, “I call the results of this process ‘interpretive chains’—a collective, holistic statement, an intriguing procession from one piece to the next, the unveiling of a unique glimpse into the artistic process and the complexity of perception.” Consenses debuted on Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., and its most recent iteration, entitled “Come to Your Senses: Art to See, Smell, Hear, Taste and Touch,” took place in June 2018 at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Mass.Taylor formed her own record label in 1998, ambitiously producing and recording three albums, as well as touring 180 days a year. When she retired from the road, she moved to Boston and began teaching music at the Berklee College of Music. Currently, she is working exclusively on Consenses. sallytaylor.com
