Ethan Jackson is a visual artist working in optical installation, photographic media, and moving image. Light, vision, image and imagination are the basis for projects that range across perceptual, spatial, documentary and experiential territory.

He received his MFA from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1995.  Since then he has taught at various institutions in the US and has shown work in a variety of venues both across the US and in Europe.  In his work he explores interests in such subjects as the various aspects of landscape representation and the notion of ‘place’; the nature and history of the illusion of space from painting to lens-based representation; and themes of violence, mortality and morality in popular and vernacular imagery. Current projects are camera-obscura based transformations of architectural space into illuminated, contemplative environments.  He is based in Portland, Oregon.

His camera-obscura installations can be viewed in the following links:
