Mark Aaron
Mark has over 30 years experience as a commercial designer working primarily in television, games and music. Aside from his commercial work, Mark has recently graduated with an MA in Art from UCS/University of Suffolk.
As well as extending his art through generative processes via computer driven modelling, code and sound, Mark’s current work gravitates towards exploring the impact of the digital both culturally and individually and seeks to direct us towards a narrative that blurs the boundaries between the virtual and the real.

60 second compression 1
taking 1 photo every second for 1 minute while driving through the Alps on the Ardeche/Provence border. I then overlaid each photograph in photoshop with transparency set to 5% for each image. There is no use of filters or other manipulation. Just compressed time. The red at the bottom is the...

Just one of 100's of low res shots taken on my iPhone while travelling through southern Ireland. All the time I was there I had the Think Travel challenge at the back of my mind. Despite all the images of wild landscapes, this one, with the characters, in bright warm sunshine, but struggling...

The Ghost in Daylight
A composite of 3 digital photographs, taken in Berlin Hauptbarnhof in September 2016. Hauptbarnhof was built on the site of Lerhter Barnhof, the last station in West Berlin before reunification. For me, the grand displays of public investment in infrastructure and transport defines the open,...

This is how I felt today...
I asked myself the question, 'beyond sculpture, and using technology, can I represent my unconscious thoughts as a physical form?' This led me to make some marks on different surfaces with acrylic paint while I closed my eyes - I just used the tension and the feedback from a brush to determine the...

A test response that refines the technique of converting sound into virtual objects. The original 'Music Scape Test A' was too static for my liking as there were subtleties within the music that the forms couldn't interpret. This BlueWaveSoundForm version uses fluids rather than a grid in order to...

A website with left right parallax scrolling content between pages. Navigation is represented as a series of geometric 'mountains/waves' that respond to left right scrolling but lock on different content areas. The idea is to create a sense of place combined with a fun and logical navigation that...

Beneath the Pavement,...
'Sous Les Paves, La Plage', was a slogan posted on walls in Paris during the Student riots of May 1968. It is a metaphor for cutting through the veneer of the establishment, to freedom.

Sun Harmonics
Data from Nasa's Solar & Heliospheric Observatory is fed through software that utilises algorithms based on computational biology to produce a 3D 'machine drawing'. The forms are a direct interpretation of the data, the colours are false and have been added in post production.

An image of an atom of silicon taken from the educational pages of MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), the image is then passed through an L-Systems interface using 3D software to create a re-imaging of the Silicon Atom's electron cloud. Textures and lighting are added to accentuate...
