The artist Mark Farid
Mark Farid
Mark Farid is a British artist, speaker, and cultural critic, who examines the formation of our projected-self, and how our constructed identity is shaped by societal and cultural expectations. Farid’s work embodies hacker ethics, such as privacy policies, use of surveillance technologies and the critique of social, legal, and political models. Farid gave a TEDx talk in 2017 about his first two projects, Data Shadow (2015), and Poisonous Antidote (2016), and took part in the Sundance New Frontier program, 2016, for his on-going project, Seeing I (2020). Farid had a solo exhibition at Ars Electronica Digital Arts Festival, 2019, and was recently selected to be the final British artist for the European Media Residency Exchange, 2020/21.
