Camera Obscura: Ethan Jackson's Visual Art Installations in Woodstock

From Jackson's Polyopticon Series
Went to see Ethan Jackson's installations at MABI today. Fascinating! I've always been drawn to ephemeral and metamorphosing visual art (Navajo sand paintings, John Luther Adams' "The Place" in Fairbanks, AK). The camera obscura images, interwoven across multiple screens both flat and curved, are serene and poetic. I'd like to see the images during a storm - I expect the effects would be far different!

"Ethan is currently Artist-in-Residence at the Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Historic Park in Woodstock, Vermont. He is installing a series of optical works in historic and contemporary buildings and working with the art collection of the park."
