Mark Dorf, juxtapositions of tech and nature
New York City - NOV 11, 2013

Mark Dorf has developed a particular artistic expression that creates juxtapositions of digitally render elements and natural landscapes. Dorf combines digital photography, collage, 3D rendering and primitive 3D scanning technology to create a series of photographs where natural and digital coexist in a striking yet perfect contrast.

Dorf considers that our perception of the world has been dramatically modified by the social dependency on technology. In social, emotional and physical terms, our relationship with our surroundings is intricately connected with online activity. In response to this, Dorf seeks to create an equilibrium between online and offline presence through his digital images.

He combines nature and the modern language of digital elements to create images that sometimes seem contradictory but in a way complete each other, resulting in a new found harmony between both worlds. In essence, he disrupts the peaceful landscapes with elements taken from a completely different context to create a new type of peace that truly reflects modern life.
