Jacob M Fisher (b.1992) is an American installation artist living and working in New York City. He earned his BA in studio art from Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, where he studied with pioneering installation artist Judy Pfaff. His large scale, site-specific installations have been exhibited nationally at institutions such as The Cornell Museum of Art & American Culture (Delray Beach, FL), and The Moxi Museum of Exploration + Innovation (Santa Barbara, CA). He has also had solo exhibitions at Nonfinito Gallery (New York, NY), On Canal (New York, NY), and Lightbox (New York, NY).
Primarily working with string & light, his work his work crosses numerous disciplines. From architecture and digital media, to sculpture, Fisher has pushed the boundaries of the way string and light can be used and transformed to create distinct forms, structures and environments. Through the combination of string and digital projections, the work finds a unique aesthetic balanced between organic and synthetic. Although he attaches no narrative meaning to his installations, much of his work deals in momentary infinities. The majority of Fishers installations are temporal, creating ephemeral moments, but permanent memories are turned into lasting digital artifacts in the form of photos and videos captured by viewers. The juxtaposition of permanent and ephemeral as it relates to installation art is at the core of Fishers practice, and guides his work as an artist.
Fisher has been commissioned to create permanent and temporary, site-specific installations for: Hilton Embassy Suites in Seattle, WA; Walt Disney Television Upfront Event in New York, NY; TRESemmé Salon for NYFW; A$AP Ferg x Uniform Pop Up; Mackage SoHo Store Launch; Rosé Mansion, Thomson Reuters; and Zerospace among others. Press write ups include: Hypebeast, Time Out New York, WWD, Brooklyn Street Art, Boca Magazine, Palm Beach Arts Paper, Florida Weekly, and The Associated Press among others.
