CURRENT STUDENTS>CARTER EGGLESTON
Graduate Student, Creative Technologies
Carter Eggleston earned his B.A. in studio art with a minor in mathematics from Davidson College in 2011. At Davidson, his creative practice focused on printmaking with occasional forays into sculpture and painting. His early work investigated the juxtaposition of contrary narrative elements, often in comic or satirical ways. After graduation, Carter attended Frogman’s Print & Paper Workshop in Vermillion, SD, and also interned at several letterpress studios in Virginia and North Carolina. Interested in utilizing contemporary technologies in his work, Carter completed several courses in computer graphics at Piedmont Virginia Community College in 2015-16, and also taught himself how to code through the Processing development environment.
Carter joined Virginia Tech as an MFA candidate in creative technologies in January 2017. Through a combination of new media and traditional methods, his work explores the relationship between technology and the people who use it. He strives to challenge the putative utility of new technology while also recognizing and acknowledging its relative capability in the world. He is fortunate to have had opportunities to exhibit his work on campus in Blacksburg, VA, as well as at the New Orleans Film Festival.
