OneBeat 2019 Collaborating Artist

Director

New York City, United States

Scott Cohen is an artist and director based in New York who has worked across the disciplines of photography, film and theater. His photographic works are primarily derived from his own documentary footage and read more as paintings than photography. His work in theater includes a collaboration developing Bone Songs with André Gregory; the Beckett pieces Waiting for Godot and Krapp’s Last Tape, Mastrisimone’s Extremities; and the original travelogue, My Great Descent. Mr. Cohen’s developed a narrative feature film, Red Knot, on a ship at sea in the southern ocean and in Antarctica. A common theme in Cohen’s work is rooted in improvisation, building ensembles and increasingly the prospect of not only creating work on location but developing work that transcends traditional mediums and invites an audience into an immersive environment.
