SCOTT CARTER (b. 1984, United States) is a Memphis based artist, whose work is influenced by the experience of living amongst mass produced materials, spaces and objects that are inherent in contemporary architecture and design. His work manifests as immersive installations and interactive objects that facilitate subtle shifts in value and attempt to redefine utility in relation to everyday experiences. His practice parallels contemporary discourse in art, design, architecture, and sound.
Scott received his MFA in Sculpture from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011 where he was the first recipient of the Eldon Danhausen Fellowship for Sculpture. He has participated in residencies at Crosstown Arts, Vermont Studio Center, Ox Bow School of Art and the John Michael Kohler Arts/Industry program with Kohler Company. In addition, he is a recipient of the Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellowship for Midwest artists (2013) and a first place recipient of the Beers Contemporary Emerging Artist Award in Sculpture (2013)
