Stephen Cartwright: The Sutherland Endowed Chair in Glass Lecture

For more than ten years Stephen Cartwright has recorded his exact latitude, longitude and elevation every hour of every day. This data is embodied physically in his sculptural objects. While working in the exhibit industry, making displays and prototypes, Cartwright was introduced to the possibilities of digital fabrication, a technique he frequently uses in his current work. Cartwright was lured away from the exhibit industry to complete several grand bicycle journeys through North America, Europe and Asia, totaling more than 20,000 miles. He relished the complete immersion in the landscape and culture that selfcontained bicycle travel afforded. While Cartwright continues his work related to his latitude and longitude recordings, other recent work focuses on human alteration of the natural landscape. Cartwright earned a BA in Studio Art from the University of California, Davis and an MFA in Sculpture from Tyler School of Art. Cartwright is currently an assistant professor in sculpture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and longs for the topographical relief that informs his practice.
