Mark Dorf is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. This is where he makes…
Two years ago I moved to Brooklyn and I have had two spaces that I work in, this one being of course the most recent. I tend not to have complex large workspaces at the moment because I work almost exclusively digital albeit through photography or other digital media like 3D, video or animation. I try to make my walls a reflection of the current headspace that I inhabit – they stay cluttered with recent works, inspiration, and texts that I have been working on so that I can at a glance look and understand my placement in my process. Additionally, I try to keep the tools I use most within arm’s length on the walls so that I’m never searching for anything for a long time – it is so important for me to be able to keep my momentum and not get stopped by something silly like trying to find a straight edge and consequently lose my direction. My work predominantly is based within the landscape, so the real studio is of course in the remote reaches that I love to explore.
Dorf’s most recent show //_PATH is being exhibited at the New Realities Exhibition in Barcelona – an international exhibition curated by Alpha-ville and powered by Mobile World Capital.
