Oldest Living Things in the World

by Rachel Sussman

About the Exhibit

May 16, 2015 - August 23, 2015

Rachel Sussman has been researching, working with biologists, and traveling the world to photograph the oldest living things in the world – organisms that have lived continuously for 2,000 years or longer. She began at “year zero” and looked back from there, exploring the living past in the fleeting present. This original index of millennia-old organisms has never before been created in the arts or sciences.

What People Are Saying

If you’re anywhere near Jackson, I’d recommend that you drive 5 min out of town and visit this beautiful place. The sculptures are extraordinary and the building itself is just a unique place that looks like it grew out of the hillside.
