Marina Zurkow makes psychological, primarily animated works about humans and their relationships to animals, plants and the weather. These reconfigured and inclusive notions of “Nature” have taken the form of multi-channel videos, customized multi-screen computer pieces, installations, prints, cartoons, and participatory public art works.
Since 2000, Zurkow has exhibited at The Sundance Film Festival, The Rotterdam Film Festival, The Seoul Media City Biennial, Ars Electronica, Creative Time, The Kitchen, The Walker Art Center, The National Museum for Women in the Arts, and Eyebeam, and other venues. She is a NYFA Fellow, a Rockefeller New Media Fellow, and a Creative Capital grantee. Zurkow is on faculty at NYU’s Interactive Technology Program (ITP), and lives in Brooklyn, New York.
