About marina zurkow

marinazurkow

I am a media artist focused on near-impossible nature and culture intersections. My work aims to contribute to new, conscious relationships as globalized humans with the biosphere. I research “wicked problems” such as invasive species, superfund sites, and petroleum interdependence. Using life science, bio materials, animation, dinners and software technologies, I often work across disciplines. As my work has deepened, I have created participatory projects to augment the seductive qualities of animation and gallery works. Currently, I’m interested in connecting cities’ rivers to oceans, and researching the tensions between marine ecologies and the oceans’ use as an import/export highway. I am a 2011 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellow, and have been granted awards from the New York Foundation for the Arts, New York State Council for the Arts, the Rockefeller Foundation, and Creative Capital. I am on full time faculty at ITP / Tisch School of the Arts, and represented by bitforms gallery. artist web site: www.o-matic.com gallery web site: bitforms.com
