About the work:
An online virtual simulation of the North Willows space reconstructed from emailed photos.
The images within the spheres are a recreation of an idealized, fictional luxury resort in the Philippines from images posted to social media feeds.
For many within the diaspora, connections to the lands of their parents are found through the Internet.
About the artist:
Mark Ramos is a Brooklyn-based new media artist. Mark is deeply committed to the ethos of open source: the free sharing of information and data + creative uses of technology. His work is engaged with democratizing the worlds of art and technology through community and individual empowerment via the means of technological production. Mark makes fragile post-colonial technology using the mediums of physical computing (using computers to sense and react to the physical world), web/software programming and digital sculpture to create interactive work that facilitate encounters with our own uncertain digital futures.
Mark has exhibited his work locally both in New York City and San Francisco, including the inaugural exhibition of Arsenal Gallery in Brooklyn and as part of multiple exhibitions at Artist Television Access and internationally in Europe and Asia.
He is an adjunct faculty member at the School of Visual Arts and Hunter College.
You can also find him playing drums for various bands in Brooklyn.
