Mark Amerika
Visiting Professor, June - July 2007

Mark Amerika is an artist, writer, theorist, VJ and filmmaker. In spring 2000, GRAMMATRON was selected as one of the first works of Internet Art to be exhibited in the prestigious Whitney Biennial of American Art. His most recent book, META/DATA: A Digital Poetics, was recently published by The MIT Press. A Professor of Art and Art History at the University of Colorado, Amerika's practice-based research methods have been translated into novels, feature-length films, museum installations, and live multimedia performances that integrate experimental music, live writing, and video sampling into the narrative mix.

During his 2 month residency with iRes, Mark worked on Immobilité, which was shot on Nokia N95 in different locations in Cornwall and was co-sponsored by iRes and Tate Modern. Immobilité is the second in a series of feature-length works of moving visual art in the "Foreign Film Series."

In July 2007 Mark was one of the two keynote speakers at the conference Disrupting Narratives, organised by iRes in collaboration with Tate Modern.
