Chris Markman

digital art

Information is beautiful. This is the cornerstone of Markman’s work as a professional librarian and archivist since 2011, and the mantra of a career centered around the transformation of data into knowledge. His goal as an artist is to demonstrate the opposite: beauty in information – the process of seeking understanding and connecting ideas. Markman’s work combines these two concepts steeped in the digital age. Through a deep understanding of the fragility of information systems and the senses, he encourages viewers to witness what is real.
