Exhibit: Artist Scot J. Wittman
Scot J Wittman is a Philadelphia-based artist with an international reach. The recipient of a National Endowment grant, he has exhibited in the Whitney Biennial, Art/Basel and the Cranbook Art Museum. Wittman has presented at Yale University, Rutgers University and Swarthmore University. Residencies have allowed him to work with noted bionano engineers and collaborate with famous dancers; with equal parts celebration and suspicion Wittman shines light on shifting human capabilities and desires. His interests have grown to include nature itself in addition to natural abilities. Additional information can be found on his feature website Mapographer.com In addition to posting newest works, he exhibits 'from the studio' thinking (drone footage, pencil sketches, video clips, etc.) on his Instagram @OpusFlight
