About the Creator

Mark Dixon's work is typically experimental and often collaborative. Over the past 5 years it has involved combining art and technology and has been exhibited locally, nationally and internationally. Over the years, Mark has used various processes such as high voltage static electricity and ink, or wireless cameras and projection equipment to record the demolition of buildings from within. During 2005 Mark worked with Commissions East on site specific installations at the Great Eastern Hotel in London as part of the Arts Council Escalator program. Since then he has had commissions and residencies with Wysing Arts Centre, The Technology Partnership, Commissions East and Arts Council England and started using LEDs triggered by mobile phones. This was developed further in a permanent public commission for Grafton House, Ipswich, installed in early 2007.
