Dark Machines

Through 2012

To accompany the exhibition Berenice Abbott: Photography and Science: An Essential UnityDaniel Jackson, an avid photographer and MIT professor of electrical engineering and computer science, created a photographic essay documenting current scientific research at MIT.

Speaking about his own work, Jackson says he believes the images “ask more questions about our ambivalence about science and big machines, and what they mean for us particularly because of our concerns about the environment, energy, nuclear weapons and mechanization.”
