Ethan Jackson, from "Polyopticon VI"
NAAU's next Couture
exhibition opens this week. With Orbis Viridus Obscurus
, photographer Ethan Jackson will convert the entire gallery space into a "living camera obscura." The project is a continuation of his exploration of the camera obscura in Polyopticon VI
, where he used mirrors, lenses, and "baffles" to distort and convert space in an abandoned ranch dwelling in Wyoming. Jackson defines the camera obscura as a "participational optics... that defines a conceptual space that is difficult to tackle directly."
Opening reception • 6-9pm • August 20

• 922 SE Ankeny St. • 503.231.8294
My excitement for Ethan's show is nearly indescribable. His focus on optical perceptions seems like a very good exhibition to follow Jacqueline's.
And sorry for the shameless self promotion, but I installed some work in the NAAU bathroom as a part of Rose McCormick's installation in there. My addition is the crackling white wall with fluorescent glowing white wood. We would all enjoy it if you checked it out.
