About This Work

As queer people of color our lives are often described as occupying contested terrains. identity politics and shifting power dynamics shape our realities.
“contested_terrain” explores this concept through a 3-D, virtual topography. Processing was used to create a dynamic, landscape floating in virtual space. Images of the artist in daily life are textured onto the polygons. Clicking and swiping on the image changes the texture and topography.

Mark Ramos is a Brooklyn-based new media artist. His work is often concerned with using digital technology as an intermediary to explore the intangible. Mark is constantly inspired by technology’s ability to make visible, audible, or thinkable that which is normally hidden. He works with the mediums of physical computing (using computers to sense and react to the physical world), software programming and digital sculpture to create interactive, installation pieces that facilitate encounters with our own uncertain digital futures. 
You can also find him playing drums for various bands in Brooklyn.
