Curriculum Vitae

Megan Jacobs earned an M.F.A. in Photography from the University of New Mexico and a B.A. in fine art with a minor in philosophy from Smith College. Jacobs’ work has been exhibited internationally and explores the delicate relationship between our existence as material and concept.  She works with photographs, video projections, time-based media, glass, and ice, materials that function metaphorically to illustrate the ambiguity of the body as well as the mutability of memory and identity.  Additionally her work explores the intersection of cultural preservation and computational imaging (photogrammetry). Jacobs' teaching interests include fine art, aesthetics, and cultural preservation through new media.

Research Interests: photography, multimedia, installation,  performance art, data visualizations, and exhibit design.
