About

Mark IJzerman (1988) is a Dutch media artist, designer, researcher and lecturer. His works explore human perception and the interconnectedness of the senses, often starting from sound. He makes installations and performs audiovisual works. IJzerman is a lecturer and researcher at the Music & Technology faculty of the University of the Arts Utrecht where he teaches courses on creative coding, media art, installations, and perception.
For the last two years his works have been exploring the intersection of our cosmic and Earthly desires, as well as the way we experience our ecology and atmosphere in a research project called Terranostalgia. He has performed his A/V works at various media arts festivals around Europe (Transmediale/CTM Vorspiel, FIBER Festival, Mapping Festival) and has most recently exhibited works at Art Center Nabi in Seoul, at the European Space Agency, and at V2_ in Rotterdam.
