3X3: CENTER FOR GENOMIC GASTRONOMY & MARK IJZERMAN III
V2_’s STARTS residents, Center for Genomic Gastronomy & Mark IJzerman, will create three new experiments in our 3×3 series. This is their final 3×3 instalment.
Mark IJzerman is an interdisciplinary artist working on the intersection of ecology and media art. IJzerman uses digital technologies to create processes that have their own agency, to make works creating intimacy between us and the other-than-human. His work is always informed by field research as well as working with other professionals.
For his STARTS residency on Biodiversity in the Rotterdam Port Mark IJzerman is researching sessile organisms in the Rotterdam port and the way they build their ecosystems, comparing the immense infrastructures we build in our harbors to the tiny habitats these life forms are creating.
