Here is how John was described by the artzine "Bomb":

John Sims is a conceptual artist who is creating a catalogue of projects spanning the mathematical art to the socio-political. In the fall of 2008, he completed Square Roots: A Quilted Manifesto for exhibition at the Wilmer Jennings Gallery, Kenkeleba House in New York. This project presented a collection of 13 quilts done in collaboration with Amish quilters that focused on the visual manifestation of Pi and the Pythagorean mathematics. The project also included his video installation by his alter ego Johannes Curtis Schwarzenstein, an AfroGermanJewish MathArtPoet and the music blues composition based on Pi. His political project Recoloration Proclamation started with re-coloring the Confederate flag to shift its paradigms surrounding white supremacy, leading to the controversial piece, "The Proper Way to Hang a Confederate Flag," the various remixing of "Dixie," and to the recoloring of other flags from other countries.
