Living in an age of information overload, Scott Kildall sees a cultural shift moving towards a media information economy. He also perceives the artist as a gatherer, so to create an original media object, Kildall often repurposes materials to give them a whole new meaning. Spark accompanies Kildall as he works on his ongoing video project called “Something to Remind Me.”
Being a multi-media artist, Kidall’s talents include welding, editing video, programming microcontrollers, building electronics and developing controlled pyrotechnic systems. He earned a B.A. in political philosophy from Brown University and an M.F.A. in art and technology studies at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work has been exhibited around the world.
