Noah Scalin’s work explores the theme of transience – specifically the temporary nature of individual lives and the tenuous nature of all human life on the planet. By using everyday items, including mass produced consumer goods & found materials, he repurposes things that would normally end up in the ever-growing garbage dumps of the world, allowing them to tell a story of the potential long-term impact, both positive & negative, of human creations.

And like human lives, his installations are intentionally temporary, reverting back to their component parts after a short lifespan, only to exist in memories and photos after they’re gone.

The Natural Selection portrait series specifically explores the lives of great scientists whose work has had an incredible impact on the world. Each diptych is made up of the portrait of a deceased scientist and a representation of his/her skull. The skull is made by literally rearranging the elements used in the portrait, thus destroying that original creation. The scientists represented are all great thinkers whose creations had an impact on our lives today, but also serious repercussions for their own lives (and deaths).
