Born in Las Vegas, Nevada, Sean Schumacher's works explore the trespasses of the past into the everyday life, seeking to uncover how urban environments are shaped across time through seemingly minor actions. His projects often share a fragility with their subject matter, and he has previously handwritten an erasable dictionary of displaced place names from Las Vegas, outlined the walls of a demolished home in a university space, and bronzed a pair of abandoned shoes to further cement their identity as a makeshift monument. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in the concentration of graphic design from the University of Nevada Las Vegas and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Portland State University's Studio Practice concentration.
