Stuart Schechter is a rocket scientist by training and an artist by vocation. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Wayne State University in Michigan and received a Master of Science degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Among the many awards he has won was with Ralph Helmick, a GSA Award for Design Excellence for "Jurisprudents" in East St. Louis, IL. A shared interest in the mechanics of visual perception, especially the consolidating properties of human vision, led the artists to the overarching concept for their first collaboration. Since then they have developed a range of experimental approaches linked more by underlying esthetic principals than a signature style.
 
Helmick and Schechter have collaborated on over twenty award-winning public sculptures. A shared interest in the mechanics of visual perception, especially the consolidating properties of human vision, led the artists to the overarching concept for their first collaboration. Since then they have developed a range of experimental approaches linked more by underlying esthetic principals than a signature style.
