Mark Anderson

Biography:

Mark Anderson uses light, sound, electronics, kinetics, fire and pyrotechnics to make compelling site specific temporary installations and performances, often spectacular, at other times subtle and intimate, and, on occasion, all these things at the same time.

 

Drawing inspiration from the meeting point between the natural, the industrial and the technological, his work utilises light and sound to explore and create, often with a childlike playfulness, a fusion of these worlds. The resulting installations and performances are moving investigations into phenomena and perception that touch, surprise and sometimes amuse audiences both young and old.

 

He often works in collaboration with other artists and groups, and was a founder member of the long running but now disbanded collective Blissbody. More recently he has established, with his partner, arts company Dark Spark.

 

Audible Forces:

“Phantom Field”

 

Twenty one of Mark Anderson’s Wind Synthesisers will form the installation “Phantom Field”, creating a swirling buffeting soundscape.  The Wind Synthesisers use an Atari Punk Synthesiser (built and modified by Graham Calvert) and computer fan to transform the slightest breath of wind into an adjustable audio signal. During the day of each show the Wind Synthesisers will be adjusted and played by the artist to create swirling harmonics, and gale force sirens.
