More about the artist:

Mark Hagen, born in 1972 in Black Swamp, Virginia, is an LA-based visual artist whose research-intensive practice often synthesizes art with anthropology, archeology, materials science, and architecture. Hagen finds inspiration in the breakdown of history, hierarchy, and vision and often creates works by pushing common and utilitarian materials in unexpected directions. Believing that the exploration of aesthetic origins can have destabilizing effects Hagen has learned the prehistoric craft of flint-knapping obsidian (a material abandoned in the bronze-age), designed a space-frame system that attempts to recover its potential as a nonhierarchical and uber-democratic structure, recreated the world’s first synthetic pigment from a 5,000-year-old Egyptian recipe, and created color in the studio by anodizing titanium with electricity and the phosphoric acid found in Diet Coke.
