SCAD presents a celebration of design innovation, contemporary art, and creative education

Experience immersive design by SCAD artists at SCAD AT MIAMI. Presented at Design Miami/, the university’s immersive installation features work by Scott Carter (B.F.A., painting, 2008), Jose Gallo (B.F.A., sculpture, 2015; B.F.A., photography, 2015), and Archana Menon (M.F.A. furniture design), whose distinct practices engage overlapping disciplines including art, architecture, design, and music.

Carter’s mixed-media installations and sculptures use quotidian mass-produced materials to redefine utility and function. Along with his sculptural works, the artist presents a site-specific installation commissioned by SCAD. Gallo employs light and translucence in his hand-crafted guitars, which use a set of internal lights that react to sound produced by the instrument. Menon’s furniture design practice is grounded in her architectural education and explores cutting-edge fabrication, while honoring traditional craft work.

The installation is activated by a performance featuring Gallo’s guitars and a chandelier of Carter’s design created from guitar cables.
