Katherine Jackson


Observatory, 2011-14 Glass, LED, Steel


Where am I Going if not Towards You, 2009 Glass, RGB, LEDs, Steel Wood


In Katherine Jackson’s Where am I Going if not Towards You, and Observatory, images are sandblasted onto glass and lit by LED’s. The works meditate on language, and the ways we read, hear, and interpret multiple communication systems. Jackson’s work combining glass and text reflects her fasci- nation with properties of transparency and opacity, with the experience of both looking at and looking through. Text presents as both a visual shape and a conceptual language, which we read as both form and content, while the reflections of the glass add an un- predictable element. This multiplicity deflects and obscures, generating multiple ways of seeing in an endless vibration.
