Seth Adam Cook (b. 1993) is an artist born and raised in the Bayou Teche region of south-central Louisiana. After experiencing the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the poisoning of the Gulf Coast caused by the BP Oil Spill, he became motivated to reflect the conflicts that befell his community and ecosystem. He completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2016 and holds an M.F.A. degree in Photography from Indiana University, Bloomington. In 2016, he became an active member of his local art community, taking part as a juror for Festival International de Louisiane's 30 Year Memorabilia Exhibition. In 2018 while earning his Master's, he gained recognition as a HASTAC scholar (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory) for his experimentation with laser-cutting technology, the results of which were presented at the Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities 2019 Spring Symposium. His work has been displayed internationally and nationally, including South Korea, Louisiana, New York, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, and Indiana.
