Scott Johnson is a sculptor, photographer and installation artist interested in the relationship between perceptual experience and the ways we map and understand space. He recently installed three projects in Another Victory Over the Sun, a group exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver: These included: "Inversion," an architectural intervention in the museum's atrium that evoked an endless landscape; "Streambed," a large "cabinet of curiosities" that included found, altered and hand-crafted objects; and "Meridian Sleeve," in which a beam of sunlight was brought down the stairwell of the museum, via a heliostat and a system of mirrors, and into the basement gallery, where it was projected among the objects of "Streambed." He is presently working on a project that will be exhibited at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.
Scott was born in 1969 and grew up in the Colorado Rockies. His work as an artist has been informed by such as experiences as herding cows on the Navajo Reservation, traveling upon the Silk Road and living in Venice, Italy.
