Mark Amerika will present his work composed over the last 15 years, a mix of personal narrative, philosophical inquiry, spontaneous theories, and cyberpunk fictions, locating the emerging spaces where new media artists operate when distributing their digital personas.
Mark Amerika, who has been named a “Time Magazine 100 Innovator,” has had four retrospectives of his digital art work. He is a Professor of Art and Art History at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
