Scot Cotterell is an Australian born, inter-disciplinary artist known for his works concerned with the experience of mediated environments. His work uses mixtures of sound, video, images and objects in gallery and live contexts to create experiences that reflect upon cultural phenomena. Scot holds and MFA from the University of Tasmania School of Art and has been nominated for the Qantas Foundation Contemporary Arts Award , The Alice Springs Art Prize and awarded the Shotgun 2010 commission by Detached Cultural Foundation and CAST, a Sound Travellers national touring grant, and several state and national funding supports through the Australia Council for the Arts and Arts Tasmania including projects in the Netherlands, Germany and Spain. Scot has also received the Jim Bacon Foundation Honours Scholarship, and Australian Post-Graduate Award Scholarship and a Gordon Darling Foundation professional development grant. Cotterell's work has been performed and exhibited nationally and internationally.

Scot will present a rick-rolling journey through depressive ai’s, performance art conspiracy theories, outsourced art production and the gig economy, cultural selfie opportunities, and new nostalgia vaporwave. Insecure webcams and zombie formalism infused with a smattering of past, recent and upcoming projects, served on a warm bed of smashed avocado.

Better be there.
