Mark Amerika
American, born 1960

Considered one of the leading pioneers of net art, Mark Amerika appropriates mainstream media, mashing it up into new forms of digital art, film, projections, performance, installations, and texts. Amerika explores the slippages between online and offline realities, examining the ways in which personal identities negotiate these spaces. “What my body of work is really investigating over time,” Amerika has said, “is the way digital media facilitates the remixing of persona.” GRAMMATRON (1997), one of Amerika’s best known works, comprises a hypertext experimental narrative combined with a gallery of digitally animated and collaged images through which visitors can navigate a path. A professor, philosopher, and author of numerous fiction and non-fiction books, Amerika has lectured and exhibited all over the world.
