MIT List Visual Arts Center artist-in-residence Matthew Day Jackson found inspiration in the Warren Museum and the Phineas Gage case for the exhibition The Immeasurable Distance .  In collaboration with the museum, Jackson scanned Gage’s skull and tamping iron and incorporated  bronze and plaster facsimiles  into his sculpture Case Study. The Immeasurable Distance was displayed at MIT’s List Center from May 8 – July 12th 2009.  More information at: MIT LIST Center – Past Exhibitions.
