Mark Charles Brown

I found this guy on the brilliantly bizarre DIS Magazine site after they posted an audio and visual remix of the video he did for Teengirl Fantasy’s new single Dancing In Slow Motion. As great an idea as it is, I’m afraid the original remains the best, and after a little bit of research (one search on Google) I found his own website, chock full of jarring videos of digital distortion set to tracks by some of our favourite artists. His work is the epitome of contemporary video art, embracing the internet as a gallery and creating works from the cracks, glitches and fall-out of digital realities. It seems to be almost accidental, a moment of serendipitous error that stuns you by its shimmering, contingent beauty. I really can’t recommend him highly enough.

Image above is a painting by Swiss artist Andy Denzler. You can see more of his wonderful work here.
