Dr Mark P. Wright

Field recordist, artist represented by IMT Gallery, London

Mark Peter Wright’s research examines the entangled relationship between humans, animals, environments and their associated technologies of capture. His practice troubles the ethico-aesthetic aspects of listening found within Nature documentary tropes and site-specific art legacies. Through a practice of playful-critical hearing his work nests technologies, humans and non-humans in close proximity; bringing to debate issues of subjectivity, preservation and place within sound arts relationship to ecology, and its possible modes of critical representation.
