Scott Cohen is a cofounder and partner in New Lab, a multi-disciplinary technology and design center in the Brooklyn Navy Yard that fosters innovation in design, prototyping, and new manufacturing.
As developers of New Lab, Macro Sea is transforming 84,000 square feet of space into a high-tech design and prototyping center that will enhance the Yard’s initiative to become a national model for sustainable industrial parks. What was once a facility for building state-of-the-art ships is fast becoming a cutting edge center that incubates and encourages a renaissance of new manufacturing. Entrepreneurs, educators, and businesses in disciplines ranging from additive manufacturing, biotech, advanced robotics, architecture, and industrial design will work alongside one another in this unique space.
Cohen’s own work is centered on the interplay between disciplines. He’s a versatile artist working in film, photography and design. He has a long history of using motion picture film to create photographic images that are inherently about movement and time. His recently completed narrative feature film, Red Knot, shot on a research vessel in the southern ocean en route to and in Antarctica, premiered at the Seattle Film Festival and won the FIPRESCI Grand Jury Award for Best New American Cinema.
