About

Jesse Colin Jackson is a Canadian artist based in Southern California. His creative practice focuses on object- and image-making as alternative modes of architectural production, manipulating the forms and ideas found in virtual and built environments through the expressive opportunities provided by digital visualization and fabrication technologies. His work has been the subject of several solo and two-person exhibitions, including Radiant City (Pari Nadimi Gallery, 2014), Automatic/Revisited (Latitude 44, 2013), Figure Ground (Gladstone Gallery, 2011), Iterations (Arepa, 2010), Usonia Road (Larry Wayne Richards Gallery, 2009), and West Lodge (Convenience Gallery, 2009). Jackson has received project funding from the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Centre for Innovation in Information Visualization and Data Driven Design, the Digital Media Research and Innovation Institute, and the Ontario Arts Council. He was a 2014-2015 Hellman Fellow at the University of California, and a 2008-2010 Howarth-Wright Fellow at the University of Toronto. Jackson is an assistant professor of art at the University of California, Irvine, where he serves as the director of undergraduate and graduate programs in Electronic Art and Design. He taught previously at OCAD University and the University of Toronto. Jackson is represented by Pari Nadimi Gallery, where his first solo exhibition received a full-page review in The Globe and Mail, Canada’s newspaper of record.
