About Ed Atkins

In high-definition video work, Ed Atkins explores the material and corporeal qualities of the digital moving image, often integrating collaged, drawn, and written elements into his presentations, or referencing works of literature. His two-channel video work and sound installation Us Dead Talk Love (2012) features a conversation between two digitally rendered cadavers that address issues of representation, narcissism, intimacy, and love, among other topics. For his single-channel video Warm, Warm, Warm Spring Mouths (2013), Atkins used a motion-capturing device and Faceshift animation software to depict a male figure who appears to reside at the bottom of an ocean; the character recites a poem by the American writer Gilbert Sorrentino. Atkins considers Hollis Frampton, a pioneer of digital art, to be a major influence on his work.

British, b. 1982, United Kingdom
