About the Art
Combining imagery from neuroscience with references from technology and language, the art of Laura Jacobson explores the collision of biology and culture. While her sculptures in clay merge impressions from industrial products (circuit boards, auto parts, tools) with brain imagery from MRIs, her prints on paper combine layers of data from maps and schematics with brain anatomy and function. Her goal is to explore the imprint of technology on human structures and to underscore the fragility and beauty of memory and mind.
Laura Jacobson earned an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (2003) and a BA from Stanford University (1989). Her prints and sculptures may be found in permanent collections at NYU Langone and Stanford University, in addition to private collections world wide.
