Noah Scalin is a multidisciplinary artist whose work is about organizing the noise of American culture into new signals – ones that illuminate the things we should be prioritizing when we’re so easily distracted by the spectacle of our society. Noah is inspired by the visual cacophony of consumer culture. Images that bombard our senses and objects that clog our landscape become a means for amplifying stories that have been underrepresented, downplayed or ignored. Noah’s interest in magic and optical illusion are incorporated into works that transform the overwhelming chaos of contemporary inputs into explorations of how we identify our place in the world, through the lens of social and environmental justice. Noah aims to inspire viewers to recognize the possibility of creation and transformation that exists all around us, even when the institutional structures of our society seem overwhelming and fixed in place.
