Jason Hackenwerth: Micro-Macro

April 17, 2009 - May 30, 2009

In this solo exhibition, internationally exhibited artist Jason Hackenwerth explored extremes of scale with his monumental, site-specific latex balloon sculptures and intricate kinetic works. Inspired by microscopic organisms, these biomorphic sculptures illustrated the increasing elasticity of human perception forced by recent technological innovations, from astrophysics to nanotechnology. Playful and disorienting, these works offered tangible examples of the evaporating boundaries of human experience and celebrated our intellectual ability to expand and contract notions of scale on infinite levels.
