Daniel Scott Parker is a poet, artist, and collaborator working across and between disciplines. He is currently based in Chicago, where he’s an MFA Poetry candidate at Columbia College and a co-curator for THE SWELL, an art cooperative and performance series. His work aims, in general, to re-examine assumptions about how language and spatial interaction inform the modern condition by recontextualizing function and meaning in a way that allows for new interpretations.
Although his primary focus involves text and poetry, Daniel has worked in book and paper making, screen printing, installation, and film. He is currently involved in a collaborative art project for a spring exhibition to be held in the C33 Gallery at 33 E. Congress Ave.
Daniel’s degrees include a BA from the University of Georgia and an MA in Literature from Georgia State University in Atlanta. In addition to having served as the 2010 Visiting Artist for the University of Georgia’s Study Abroad Art Program in Cortona, Italy, it is also currently the Graduate Ambassador for Columbia College’s MFA Poetry program. He is the author of the chapbooks L’esprit de l’escalier (Chantepleure Press, 2013) and (i.e., jump) (Two Steps Press, 2014). His poems and poem-films have appeared or are forthcoming in publications like Coconut, RealPoetik, Spork Press, Ghost Proposal, NAP, Marco Polo, and others.
