Blake Carrington (b. 1980) operates within the spheres of the sound, visual and media arts. His work in all of these forms is informed largely by cultural geography, landscape and architecture. The areas between these formalized spatial practices and the experiential qualities of sound and visual art practice are the main focus of his work.
In 2011 Carrington will be artist-in-residence at Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Swing Space on Governors Island, and has recently completed residencies at HIAP in Helsinki, Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida, and Rustines Lab in Montreal, where he performed his piece Cathedral Scan at Elektra International Digital Arts Festival. In 2009 he received his MFA from Syracuse University and was recipient of the Dorothea Ilgen Shaffer Fellowship. There, he co-founded the platform for outdoor projections called Urban Video Project, and in 2010 curated a series for UVP featuring Trevor Paglen, Jill Magid, Thomson & Craighead and Miranda Lichtenstein.
In addition to his work in sound and video, he also creates hi-res digital prints from custom Max/MSP/Jitter patches. His print series Loci_, exploring the questionable translation of field recordings to abstract landscape imagery, is in The Drawing Center’s Viewing Program in New York. Blake was born in Indiana and currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
