Jason J. Ferguson



Jason J Ferguson uses humor, the uncanny, and an absurdist voice to create public interventions, performance works, videos, and sculptural objects. Ferguson’s psychologically charged installations have been said to raise issues of artistic control, consciousness, and mortality. He spent his formative years in Baltimore where he received his BFA from Towson University and continued his studies at the University of Delaware where he completed his MFA in 2006.

Ferguson has exhibited internationally including exhibitions in Japan, China, Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Albania, Canada, and the Netherlands; as well as nationally in Brooklyn, Chicago, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Kansas City, Cincinnati, and Detroit. Notable venues include the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MoCAD), the Delaware Contemporary, the Institute of Contemporary Art Philadelphia, Brooklyn’s BRIC, and the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago. He was an Artist in Residence at Elsewhere Artist Collaborative in 2007 and New Riddles and Constellations, the Netherlands in 2008. His artwork has been featured in a variety of publications including SCULPTURE magazine, Hyperallergic, SciArt Magazine, Artifizz, the Chicago Art Review, the 3D Additivist Cookbook, and more. Ferguson currently resides in Michigan where he is a Professor in the School of Art & Design at Eastern Michigan University.



Installation / Sculpture

The collection of small sculptures captures poetic moments from the sheltered and repetitive routine of life during the global pandemic. Each MSLA 3D printed resin fragment was created by taking hundreds of photographs of compositions in and around our house during 2020/2021. Then processed the images using photogrammetry software to generate 3D models. Gently used towels lined along the bathroom wall, the honest tossing of blankets on a chair, folded laundry on a wooden bench waiting for our children to put them in their drawers; these are all artifacts of existence. The process became an act of paying closer attention to the quiet, often overlooked, arrangements of objects in space around our home. The ruptured, incomplete forms highlight the limitations of software and speak of focus, memory, and loss.
