Jay Gould, professor of photography at Maryland Institute College of Art and HEMI’s 2016 Artist in Residence, will present a variety of new projects that depict and react to the research being done at HEMI in preparation for an exhibition at the MSE Library in April, 2017.
Using a wide range of media and processes, this work reimagines HEMI’s research using playful analogies, unique narratives and unexpected lab documentation, inviting audiences to admire the depth and fascination that extreme materials represent.
Gould received his BFA from the University of Wisconsin and his MFA in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. His work, which integrates scientific topics into installation, and constructed photographic projects, is widely exhibited and has won numerous national awards, such as the Berenice Abbott Prize and the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward Festival.
A capstone exhibition of works developed over a one-year residency with the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute.

Artist Talk 5:30 – 6 PM
Extreme is a word often used to consider the outermost limits. We strive to find the boundaries of our existence, yet we assume that those bounds can always be pushed further. This exhibition of photographs and sculptural works uses analogy and storytelling to playfully describe how HEMI is pushing the extreme boundaries of materials, time, and scale through their research. The audience is invited to consider the imagination required to observe and test a world that is so far beyond our given, natural senses.
