EWFM, Room 520
Stephen Cartwright is an artist and self-tracker. He creates his work through the intersection of analog and digital technologies—from pencil on paper to 3D computer modeling and digital fabrication. His personally collected data includes his exact latitude, longitude and elevation for every hour since June 21, 1999 and many other data sets. From this information, Cartwright creates multi-dimensional maps and objects and offers a unique perspective of one person’s transit through life. Cartwright’s sculptural visualizations are more than just illustrations of data—they create new forms and topographie.
Stephen Cartwright is Associate Director, School of Art and Design, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
