The connecting tissue of Mark-David’s interdisciplinary work lies in his exploration of nonlinear narrative as a representation of information, time, and space. Nonlinear narrative is an inherent aspect of new media that provides a common baseline whereby media artworks can be evaluated and understood. His research and work explores the boundaries between the virtual and the physical world. Whether as part of an installation or performance work, the virtual spaces he creates are technologically transparent, sophisticated and virtuosic, as well as intuitive to experience and use.
