Wilson’s work is a combination of digital composition and traditional methods that coalesce in highly fractured, architecturally inspired sculptures. His current work uses photographs as a three dimensional medium to explore the inherent conflict between modes of perception and experience. His background includes extensive training in metal fabrication, foundry, and woodworking and his professional practice has extended from sculpture into the fields of furniture making, set design and interaction design. He has permanent public works at the University of Minnesota and Mall of America, and is a current collaborator with the Mobile Arts Platform, creating transportable performance/projection environments.
