Morgan Cuppet-Michelsen

Morgan Cuppet-Michelsen is an artist who works with the medium and material languages of photography, filmmaking, sound and sculpture. Culling from academic archives, popular magazines/films and language (linguistics, word play, and jargon) to create interplays of material physics and metaphysics. Using the primacy of language, he investigates how history, popular culture, folklore, and/or trauma can frame and guide the way one can perceive, engage, and move through the material world as a mediated subject and collapsing material exploration with explication. 

Morgan Cuppet-Michelsen received his BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2008 and his MFA from University of California - Irvine in 2020.
