DESIGN: //_PATH by Mark Dorf

Brooklyn, New York basd artist Mark Dorf bases his work on contradictions: ethereal versus concrete, transparent versus opaque, synthetic versus natural.

Using digital techniques like photography, collage, 3D rendering, and 3D scanning technology, Dorf builds images with elements from opposing sources.

A digitized surreal tree in a forest. A transparent topographic map of a mountain range nestled among trees. Dorf’s images tricks the eye, while toying with the mind.

Describing the series, “//_PATH,” Dorf writes, “The natural landscape can be seen as the most ancient of symbolic languages: it is the original set of symbols that birthed all of modern language; it is the original text. Focusing on the landscape and our modern digital language, I seek to understand our aggressive capture and digitization of our surroundings through very basic use of pure color and the native tools of contemporary digital imaging that we use to create meaning and manipulation in mass media.”
