Biography

Scott Myles’s conceptual practice takes form in many mediums—including sculpture, photography, print, and painting—but is united by a singular interest in human behavior and interaction. Myles’s works often incorporate his own body’s proportions, or anticipate the participation of his visitors. His immersive installations borrow structures and forms from municipal landscapes and architecture. One of his most famous bodies of work features large screenprints of texts excerpted from instructional signage in public spaces. Since 2011, he has also been collaborating with Gavin Morrison on “A History of Type Design,” in which the two artists employ takuhon, a Japanese frottage technique, to make rubbings of famous typographers’ gravestones.
