Logan Hamilton Acton (b. 1987) is an interdisciplinary artist and designer currently working in North Texas. Acton earned his BA in Art & Performance and his MA in Aesthetic Studies from the University of Texas at Dallas, going on to study at the Kansas City Art Institute and complete his MFA in Sculpture at Cranbrook Academy of Art. He is pursuing his PhD in Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication at UTD through research focused on digital craft.

Combining sculptural installation with video, animation and performance, Acton’s art practice explores a speculative cartography. Through a propositional system paring mythic figures with extreme music, his work meditates on meaning and the psychological constructs through which we navigate contradictory experiences.

Acton previously taught in the rigorous mentor-based Foundation program at the Kansas City Art Institute, and has led instruction across wide-ranging subjects including Perception, Visual Forces, Spatiality, and Temporality. Acton is formerly a Co-director / Co-curator with the artist-run gallery plug and Co-founder / Principal of the brand strategy and design consultancy the ARGOT/NOTS.
