Mark Dorf ’s work is concerned with a mix of photography and digital media, exploring the post-analogue experience, society’s interactions with the digital world and its relationship to our natural origins.
The artist examines the influence of the information age through the combination of photography and digital media, researching how we encounter and understand our environment through the filter of science and technology.
For his artwork, Mark explores our curious habitation of the 21st century world through the juxtaposition of nature and the digital domain. His series titled //_PATH investigates digital photography, collage, 3D rendering, and primitive 3D scanning technology. The focus of his images lies on strict geometric and synthetic forms which contrast with the landscape they are inserted in.
The natural landscape can be seen as the most ancient of symbolic languages. Focusing on the landscape and our modern digital language, Dorf seeks to understand our aggressive capture and digitization of our ambiance through the use of pure color and the native tools of contemporary digital imaging, we use to generate importance and manipulation in mass media.
