Hola, I'm Mark Payne, a visual artist / web designer living & working in Melbourne, Victoria. I'll always be up for an artistic collaboration & very interested in any new work possibilities. To say Hola back, find me on one of the following social networks.
In November, OpenLAB Melbourne invited me to give a 40 minute artist talk. I went through my “the Ghosts of Strangers” art project, pulling apart some of the images in detail.
Started working on the VIRTUAL DRAG! project (which will be part of the Midsumma Festival 2016) - An immersive exhibition of 3D scans of drag performers via virtual reality headsets and projections with fellow artists Alison Bennett, Megan Beckwith
1-7 February 2016 - Testing Grounds 1-23 City Road, Southbank
Finally launched an online home for the Ghosts of Strangers project
I wrote up a version of a quick talk I gave at a Media Lab Melbourne event as part of Pause Fest 2015
Presented at medium.com
Photos from my part in this amazing exhibition - Curated by Miriam Arbus, the exhibition revealed both the aesthetic and social developments that are a result of our lives being permeated by the ever-present internet.
Gave a talk in a PechaKucha styled event held by Media Lab Melbourne as part of Pause Fest 2015 on what I've been doing with Photogrammetry
An art project which visually explores how any interaction we have with strangers has the potential to linger on forever in our lives.
Remixing objects & environments using photogrammetry & 3D manipulation
An ongoing collection of slides that I have purchase from op-shops, garage sales, camera swap meets or flea markets.
