Stacy Jo Scott works to disrupt the presumed binary of the tangible materiality of clay and the intangible machinic code of emergent technologies. Her research explores the possibilities of using digital processes of material fabrication—such as custom generative software tools and unorthodox 3D printing techniques—to convey an unsettled history, eliciting a sense of poetic speculation and queer futurity. By embracing glitches and digital idiosyncrasies that interrupt the numeric logic of the machine, she aims to expand our collective understanding of what it means to be materially embodied in a world that is increasingly intertwined with technology.
Stacy Jo’s artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally including at Galleri ROM, Oslo, Norway; Holding Contemporary, Portland, OR; Design Fest, Gent, Belgium; Rockelman & Partner, Berlin, Germany; Thomas Hunter Projects in New York, NY; and upcoming at AB Projects, Los Angeles, CA. Her writing has been published in numerous publications online and in books and periodicals, and she has participated in various residencies including the Visiting Artists and Scholars Program at the American Academy in Rome, Italy. She received her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, and was previously a Franzen Fellow for Digital Craft at Colorado State University, a Lecturer at University of California, Berkeley, and she is currently an Assistant Professor of Ceramics at the University of Oregon.
