About the Artist
David Clark is a Halifax artist working in a wide variety of modes including drawing, sculpture, digital media, film, video, and sound. He is known for his large-scale interactive works for the web: "88 Constellations for Wittgenstein" and "A is for Apple", work that has been exhibited at festivals and exhibitions around the world including the Sundance Film Festival, SIGGRAPH, the European Media Arts Festival, Transmediale in Berlin, and the Museum of Moving Images in New York. His work has won the top awards at FILE, Sao Paulo, and the SXSW Interactive Festival. “88 Constellations for Wittgenstein” was included in the Electronic Literature Collection #2 and won the 2011 Nova Scotia Masterwork Award. He recently completed a public commission that used Augmented Reality to link an iPhone app to 24 sundials installed at Sir Sandford Fleming Park in Halifax. He teaches Media Arts at NSCAD University in Halifax.
My career in art has been a bit of a roller coaster ride. At times I have been a sculptor, a filmmaker, or a digital media artist. I feel that I am, consistently, a collagist; I sample the world and reform it and reorganize it in new juxtapositions. I am interested in narrative but feel more comfortable presenting stories as a territory to explore rather than a contrived linear story. Aspects of my practice are very material and intuitive and yet I also explore ephemeral media such as Augmented Reality or deploy strict conceptual structures to guide my explorations.
To learn more about David Clark, please visit his website – www.chemicalpictures.net . Below are a few links to a sampling of Clark’s work. Both “88 Constellations (to be played with the Left Hand)” and “A is for Apple” are interactive web-based projects.
