Scott Morrison intertwines video installation and intricate sound design to create new ways of viewing both natural and synthetic environments. These rhythmic and undulating audio visual works combine an interest in the aesthetics of rural landscape, with an ability to bend his audience’s perception of density and time. Live editing and sonic performances are an important part of Morrison’s practice and he has appeared in countless performances both nationally and abroad, with recent inclusion in the MONA FOMA Festival line up for 2012. Morrison’s solo exhibitions include ballad(s) for quiet horizons, Canberra Contemporary Art Space (2007) and The Monolith @ Cinechamber, Musikprotokoll, Graz (2011); and his contributions to group exhibitions include Figuring Landscapes, Tate Modern, London, amongst others. In 2011, Morrison was awarded an Art Start Grant by the Australia Council for the Arts as well as receiving the coveted 2011 Reg Rowe Scholarship.
