County: King County
Scott Schuldt is an interdisciplinary artist working in a variety of mediums including hand-sewn beadwork, photography, video, handmade maps, and sculpture. His work is content driven and strongly thematic with subjects including earth sciences, history, nature, politics, and social issues. His work is in the collections of the City of Seattle, King County, and New York City’s Museum of Arts and Design.
Scott received 2010 GAP Award funding to purchase new equipment, materials, and pay for festival entry fees for his project The View from the Canoe, a multimedia artistic documentation of altered waterways focusing on but not limited to Seattle. The waters of Seattle have undergone significant alterations since the arrival of the first white settlers in the 1850’s. Rather than focus strictly on the facts, the project reflects on the nature that has continued to fight back and the attitudes that people have towards water, which is often contradictory.
