Visual Artist Mark Lyken and Filmmaker Emma Dove explore Scotland's Ecological Consciousness through a deconstruction of Natural History Film making."
Mark Lyken is a Visual & Sound Artist based in Glasgow, Scotland.
Working across diverse disciplines, he creates paintings, murals, sculptures, installations, sound and musical works.
Influenced by cellular division and decay, his paintings toy with time and scale, worlds within worlds, chemical universes revealed at a microscopic level. His music reﬂects this same detail, decayed sounds and transmissions shimmer in space, a melodic sea of scientiﬁc musical patterns that chime with that certain universal emotion.
Of particular interest is the interplay between nature, culture and technology, revealing the musicality of the environment and the ways in which digital existence may be reconciled with the soul inherent in analogue mediums.
Mark regularly collaborates with artists and specialists from different research fields.
Emma Dove is a freelance filmmaker, camera operator and editor. She is particularly interested in the narratives of life that tend to go unnoticed in the general day to day, revealing the stories behind the seemingly banal. Emma is fascinated by place, identity, communication, expression, and the interplay between nature and culture.
Originally from the Black Isle, she studied Film & Media at the University of Stirling. Her graduation film, On Another Note, won Best Factual Programme at the Royal Television Society Scotland Student Awards and is currently showing at short film festivals and screenings internationally.
