Meet a Lab Assistant: Bryn Schulte

How long have you been a Lab Assistant at Latitude?
I’ve been a Lab Assistant since January of 2016.

What do you enjoy most about working at Latitude?
I’d have to say it’s a split between: getting to interact with the large community of artists that come to Latitude, and all the things I’ve learned so far from the staff and my fellow lab assistants.

Tell us a little bit about your art and projects you are currently focusing on. 
Most of my work revolves around human interaction, social groups or subcultures, and perception of spaces. I have two main bodies of work that I’ve been working on for some time now, Solitary Utopia and Flat Spots & Broken Spokes. Solitary Utopia looks at and questions how we perceive, react to, and interact with spaces and structures. While Flat Spots & Broken Spokes is a documentary series, that I started in high school, about BMX and Skateboarding. 

What does “being creative” mean to you?
I think that being creative is about asking questions and problem solving. How we form questions and then come up with an explanation or solution, or produce another question that helps us come closer to an answer. 

What is the title of the last book you read?
 I don’t remember what the last book I read was, but the last article I read was an online copy of “The Psychology Of Space” from the January 2013 issue of the New Yorker. I find a lot of artistic inspiration from psychology articles and architecture.

What type of music are you currently listening to? 
I listen to a lot of different genre’s of music. Recently I’ve been listening to: Bring Me The Horizon, Lorn, Vindata, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Holdup, Danny Brown, and Muddy Waters. 

What artist is currently inspiring you?
It’s currently a five-way tie between Ed Templeton, Sandy Carson, Bob Thall, James Nachtwey, and Jeff Wall. I would say that Sandy Carson’s work has been really inspiring these last few weeks. DIG BMX recently did a video piece on his life and artwork, which was extremely inspiring.
