Laura Jacobson’s “Resonance Puncuated L+”


Inspired by digital MRIs of the human brain, clay slabs are stamped repeatedly with pressings from industry and technology, formed into bio brain sculptures, and arrayed in a grid on the wall. The pigmented ceramic describes the material brain while evoking the ethereal mind, plastic, whimsical, and in search of pattern and meaning. Ceramic, with its long history of utility and rich associations as art and artifact, stands in for temporal human endeavor: each notation on the raw surface, once vitrified by kiln fire, captures a brief moment. As do the standing vessels, whose abstracted forms with fissures and geological ruts (cum industrial stampings) remind of human fragility and persistence.
