"MRK's surprising combination of the areas of biology, neuroscience, artificial life, cyberculture, posthumanism, and physics, explores the tension between the virtual and the material, the organic and the digital.

"MRK's surprising combination of the areas of biology, neuroscience, artificial life, cyberculture, posthumanism, and physics, explores the tension between the virtual and the material, the organic and the digital. The style is equally complex, an amalgam of cyberpunk, graphic minimalism, typography and even surrealism, creating a visually and culturally stimulating mix. Obsessed with supervenience and the hierarchy of existence, MRK's existentialist outlook comes to reshuffle and reinterpret experience and reality by providing new metaphors, challenging objectivity and providing a stimulating take on truth."

"Looking at the energetic abundance of life percolating in MRK's work, a delicate balance is exposed. Canted angles and aggressive, conflicting subjects reveal a fundamental tension that is essential to the ecology of these closed environments (such environments are also a key component in incubating and accelerating tension). The binding processes of proteins, viral infection and an insect's ability to scavenge and recycle biological materials illustrate both individual responsibilities to survival as well as an essential, mutualistic relationship with other organisms. An inherent sensitivity is revealed in the interaction of organic subjects." AG Read Less
