Mark NAPIER has created a wide range of projects which appropriate the data of the Web, transforming it into a parallel Web - in which content becomes abstraction, text becomes graphics, and information becomes art.

Mark Napier, painter-turned-digital-artist, is one of the early pioneering artists of the Internet to exploit the potential of a worldwide public space. Creating artwork exclusively for the Web, including such seminal works as "The Shredder," "Digital Landfill" and "Feed," he has embraced an unprecedented artistic form that gives the viewer the freedom to recontextualize the medium, to shred its contents. Most recently his worked have been included in leading exhibitions of digital art, including: the Whitney Museum of American Art Biennial Exhibition, the Whitney's Bitstreams exhibition, and the San Francisco Museum of Art's 010101: Art in the Age of Technology.
