Jackson's academic research focuses on experimental use of emerging and obsolete media to critically and aesthetically explore the intersections of memory and place. Jackson specifically focuses on urban and rural landscapes and communities at risk of physical dissolution due to environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors. She explores how technology can simultaneously preserve and question the permanence of place and the memories and relationships people attach to familiar locations.
