Matthew Day Jackson: The Immeasurable Distance
The Immeasurable Distance is a solo exhibition that includes work based on Matthew Day Jackson’s residency at MIT. His research and experiences at MIT are manifested in sculptures, paintings, objects, videos, photos, and books. Playing with themes as large as technology, nature, and God, Jackson analyzes and comments on today’s culture and the influence scientific discoveries have had on our decision-making as a society. This exhibition catalogue features essays by curator Bill Arning, science and technology curator of the MIT Museum, Deborah Douglas, author and MIT professor David Mindell, systems administrator for the MIT Lincoln Laboratory Tom Morton, and a comic strip by illustrator David Tompkins.
