Marcus Thurman is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher, exploring the synergetic relationship between Photography, Society, Technology and Perception.
Marcus is currently in the early stages of developing a new project. He is looking into the idea that the contemporary experience of photography is potentially an embodied, performative one, mediated by both culture and commerce but questions where the agency lies and the future effect of this upon the medium itself.
Alongside creative projects, Marcus engages in academic writing, taking opportunities to submit papers and talks to a wide variety of publications and conferences. Most recently (in January 2020), he spoke about his ongoing project, Matter Materiality, at the monthly Photocafé event, ran by GRAIN projects.
