Mark is a visual artist working in 3D. He employs the process of photogrammetry to capture the world around him. Taking digital snapshots of reality, which through the acquisition process become broken and fragmented playing into his dark aesthetics.
Mark's most popular work to date has been the collaborative artwork titled 'Virtual Drag!' with Alison Bennett & Megan Beckwith. The project featured 3D scans of drag queens and kings in unique environments which people access via VR headsets.
His other ongoing project is 'the Ghosts of Strangers' a project which visually explores how any interaction we have with strangers has the potential to linger on forever in our lives. The raw source material is video submitted by complete strangers, which is then processed and turned into a 3d model and then a final art work.
VR is a medium he continues to explore as a home for his work.
