Garbage In, Garbage Out: Projection
Sam is a multimedia artist from Boston exploring perception's role in the creative process and in conveying and understanding the intrapersonal experience. He conceptualizes future possibilities and questions regarding direct expression of thought. Inspired by the visual language of pattern recognition, Sam references pareidolia, surreal automatism, dreams, and artificial neural networks in his practice. Sam’s art has been featured in the Herbert F. Johnson Museum and was accepted into the 2020 Best of SUNY and SUNY Chancellor’s Gallery Exhibitions. Sam was selected for Cornell’s 2020 Anderson Ranch Painting Scholarship, a \art grant, the Elsie Dinsmore Popkin ’58 Art Award, and the 2020 Edith Adams & Walter King Stone Award in recognition of work filled with promise in advance of his thesis year.
