LIVES / WORKS IN BROOKLYN, NY
Mark Kremer is an architecture student at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Much of his childhood was spent taking apart machines and reconstructing them--with the intent of discovering each parts' role in a larger mechanical process. A toy he was fascinated with is his grandparents' spirograph. Hours were spent using this basic machine to create drawings that amazed and perplexed him. His decision to study architecture is rooted in an understanding that buildings are large machines requirikng complex systems to function.
Kremer's work ranges from mixed media projects to drawings and small sculptures. His search into invention and techniques has lead him to explore mediators and tools that bridge the hand and the artistic medium. In his series of drawing machines explore the constructed spirograph as mediating tools that simultaneously facilitate precision, constrain the hand and intensify the act of drawing.
Mark Kremer was born in 1991 in Indianapolis, IN and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He is a candidate for his B Arch at the Pratt Institute in May 2015. Orbital Cycles marks his first solo drawing installation and mini residency..
