Scott Freeland has a fascination with the struggle between man and nature and explores the balance and disparity between these two contradictory forces. He also has a deep curiosity about how truth and reality can be controlled through digital and photographic means.
His digital illustrations undergo a digital corruption process that produces unplanned, random faults that help to convey how time, technology and human interpretation can change an original image or narrative. The digital pixel is replaced by the half-tone dot, a defiant rejection of the digital world’s attempt to imitate reality and as homage to the work of Hannah Höch.
Within the structure of his screenprints, the shapes of places with significant relevance to the protagonist can sometimes be found, hidden within plain sight. The sense of memory is then mapped within the final image and provides a means of authentication.
