College for Creative Studies: Art Practice (Fine Arts)
Where some people see a crumbling building or aging debris, Scott Hocking sees an opportunity — to learn about our past and ponder the future.
He’s a site-specific installation artist/photographer who explores once thriving environments/locations and finds creative ways of giving old artifacts new life.
“Making a living as an artist can be really difficult. But if it’s what you really want to do, it’s worth it."
You have to believe in yourself and have a strong work ethic. Even if you become successful, you’ll still have to work hard. The sacrifices are great, but the reward is finding a career you love and not having to live with the regret of never trying.”
Hocking has exhibited his work and created projects throughout Michigan as well as in Chicago, St. Louis, New York, and such international locations as Toronto, Vienna, Berlin, the Netherlands, Iceland, Australia, Slovenia and southern France.
