The hovering, in-camera installations featured in this ongoing series of photographs are inspired by selforganizing, “emergent” systems in nature such as termite mounds, swarming locusts, schooling fish, and flocking birds. The images attempt to tap the mixture of fear and fascination that those phenomena tend to evoke, while creating an uneasy interplay between the natural, the manufactured, the real, and the imaginary. At the same time, each image is an experiment in juxtaposition. By constructing the sculptures from unexpected materials and placing them where they seem least to belong, Jackson tweaks the margins of our visual vocabulary and invites fresh interpretations of everyday things.
