"Local artist and University alumnus Jair will host his second art event, Metamedia Cooperation II, in the EMU Ballroom today at 5 p.m. Jair, who goes by only his first name and does not disclose his age or past, is an experimental artist who combines music, visual and graphic arts to create an "experience" for participants...

[43] What's Happening, Eugene Weekly, January 19, 2006
"Friday evening, the Metamedia Cooperation II takes place at the UO's EMU Ballroom. We're hard pressed to properly explain the Metamedia project without quoting directly from the event flyer..."

Jair: Artist With Flair: His life's work is bringing diverse people together to think outside the box
By Lewis Taylor, Photo: Chris Pietsch, The Register-Guard, January 16, 2006 [MLK Bday]
"Jair is not an easy guy to pin down.
A technologically savvy artist who came to Eugene from Southern California in the 1990s to study music composition at the University of Oregon, he doesn't use his last name and won't reveal his age."

When asked where he lives, he has a simple answer. "I live on planet Earth," he says. For Jair, art is life, and he prefers to let his art speak for itself...
