Jesse Colin Jackson’s creative research practice centres on object- and image-making as discursive modes of architectural production. Educated as an artist, architect and engineer, Jackson appropriates and recontextualizes the images, forms, and conceptual apparatus found in the infrastructural landscape. His past solo and two-person exhibitions include Radiant City (Pari Nadimi Gallery, 2014) Automatic/Revisited (Toronto Design Offsite Festival, 2013); Figure Ground (Gladstone Gallery, 2011); Usonia Road (Larry Wayne Richards Gallery, 2009); and West Lodge (Convenience Gallery, 2009). Jackson has received project funding from the Ontario Arts Council, the Centre for Innovation in Information Visualization and Data Driven Design, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. In 2009, he was shortlisted for the Canada Council for the Arts Prix de Rome in Architecture for Emerging Practitioners. He is a 2014 Hellman Fellow at the University of California, and, in partnership with collaborator Luke Stern, was the 2008—2010 Howarth-Wright Graduate Fellow at the University of Toronto. Jackson previously taught at the University of Toronto and OCAD University.
