Artist Statement

In the age of computerization, machine-human collaboration can unlock the full potential of our societies and future generations. It is in this way that artistic works with technologies create a deeper level of engagement and unique conversations beyond the vestige of traditional art experiences.

About

G. Scott Queen is an emerging research and conceptual artist who takes a technologist approach to creating physical and virtual works of art, engaging with new media and observer interaction for expressive purposes. His installations leverage generative and cybernetic programming, AI, custom computers, extended reality (AR, VR, Omniverse), interactive audio, video, and lighting.

Brief description of work and process.

Queen's work intentionally breaks away from traditional art making tools as a means of interrupting the commonality of historical work and provides a new perspective for public interaction. With each installation, there is an inventory of effects derived from the collection of theoretical research and writings, environmental data, open source machine intelligence, and direct human touch. These ephemeral streams of data coalesce to create transformative physical and virtual works using new media techniques.
