Artist-In-Residence Jesse Colin Jackson Engages and Educates Tartans with Unique 3D Projects

The visual arts department welcomed Jesse Colin Jackson for a week of creation and education as Artist-in-Residence, turning the visual arts center into a fun and interactive hub for creative construction.

Mr. Jackson is an assistant professor of art at the University of California, Irvine, and brought his interactive project “Marching Cubes” to the Alisa and William Reising Gallery. The project consists of hundreds of 3D-printed magnetic shapes that allow for endless creative possibilities.

Mr. Jackson engaged students with his “Marching Cubes” project throughout the week, building various pieces as students passed by and classes took breaks to come observe. He also lectured in the Upper School’s AP art history and digital photography classes, shared his art with students during a tutorial and hosted a lunch where students could share their projects with him.
