Exploring individuality and objectivity through algorithmic process
His work is inspired by the idea of the individual as it relates to a digital user experience and a curiosity to explore his own individuality and objectivity through algorithmic processes.
Carter Flachbarth was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1996. He is a current BFA candidate at Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta.
Carter is a painter that draws on his personal experiences in the 21st century to create his mixed media imagery.
Carter objectively records his daily life through drawings and writings. Then, using an app he developed, the drawn experiences are collaged and manipulated into a single image.
With this information, Carter challenges the way we understand technology by allowing the app to be the creator and himself to be a tool.
Carter has exhibited at various galleries across the Southeast and his recent solo exhibition titled .jpg was held at the Gadsden Museum of Art in Alabama. He has been featured in Wotisart? Magazine from Manchester, England (2018), and his work is in the collection of Derrick Adams and Austin Lee.
Carter continues to live and work in Atlanta where he develops his practice.
