ABOUT

Dan Roth is an artist and sculptor based in Brooklyn, NY. As a response to threatening environmental issues, Roth’s work ponders the role of contemporary art in a world where creativity is a necessary tool for developing sustainable systems. 

 

Roth’s work also embodies the idea that sculpture can be utilized to represent and influence global systems, using even the modest building blocks of gravity, gesture, and motion. Roth is committed to pursuing future site-specific works that mesh with compromised ecosystems to create dialogue, visual spectacle and real-time support for the habitat in which the work is installed. Upcoming works include the use of recycled plastics, solar panels and a sculptural cultivation technique for native, beneficial fungi in various green spaces.

 

Roth believes strongly in the power of creativity as it relates to overcoming environmental turmoil and producing a sustainable future. He often describes his work as inquisitive visual experimentations, intended to generate viewers’ curiosity.
