Marfa-based artist Adam Bork creates multimedia installations that combine recycled technology, appropriated imagery, photography, and sound. The artist, known by Marfa locals as a jack-of-all-trades, works from his geodesic dwelling. Using the angular space as a temporary gallery for his eclectic work, Bork’s home features stacked sculptures composed of low-fi computer and television monitors. The multimedia images glowing from these ancient screens feature Technicolor sequences and eerie footage of blinking eyes.
Bork studied studio art at Southwestern University in Georgetown, TX from 1988-1991 and photography at School of Visual Arts in New York, NY (2000-01). Bork has had solo exhibitions at Marfa Book Company Gallery, TX (2008); Wichita Falls Museum of Art, TX (2007); and Galleri Urbane, Marfa, TX (2006). His photographs have served as the primary design element in album covers for the band Soul Hat (Epic/Sony Records), one winning the Austin Chronicle Best Album Cover 2nd place award in 1993, and another winning 1st place in1995. His short films have been screened at the Alamo DraftHouse, Austin, TX Other Cinema, San Francisco, CA; and The Wichita Falls Museum of Art, TX.
