Biography

Blake Marques Carrington works within the spheres of the sound, visual and performing arts. He has had solo exhibitions at Contemporary Art Center New Orleans, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, Central Utah Art Center, and VisArts, featuring a range of work from inkjet painting generated by sound to video installation using custom software systems. Parallel to his work in the visual arts context, he writes and performs original audiovisual compositions and releases full length albums. His debut album “Cathedral Scan” was released in 2011 by the LA-based Dragon’s Eye Recordings, and in 2012 Radio del Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid commissioned a follow-up. His latest work in the electronic/experimental music field has been developed under the moniker “Russian Ark Sakura”. Working collaboratively, he has created and performed concert visuals with Patti Smith and Soundwalk Collective, and co-founded a platform for contemporary video art projections in public spaces called Urban Video Project that featured the work of Trevor Paglen, Jill Magid, and Miranda Lichtenstein. He has received a Jerome Foundation Travel Study Grant and NYFA Fellowship in Electronic Arts. Blake was born in Indiana and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, where he is coordinator of the Interactive Arts major in Pratt DDA.
