Dr. Mark­-David Hos­ale is a media artist and com­poser. Mark­ David holds a Ph.D. in Media Arts and Tech­nol­ogy from the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia; Mark­David cur­rently holds a po­si­tion as an As­sis­tant Pro­fes­sor in Dig­i­tal Media in the Fine Arts Fac­ulty of York Uni­ver­sity, Toronto, On­tario, Canada. Mark­David has had works ex­hib­ited and per­formed in­ter­na­tion­ally works in media arts and music at con­fer­ences, uni­ver­si­ties, and fes­ti­vals and has given lec­tures and taught in­ter­na­tion­ally at in­sti­tu­tions in Den­mark, The Nether­lands, Nor­way, and the United States. Mark­-David’s in­ter­ests are in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary, but the con­nect­ing tis­sue comes from ap­proach­ing art and music using non­lin­ear rep­re­sen­ta­tions of in­for­ma­tion, time, and space. An­other im­por­tant focus is ex­plo­ration of the con­nec­tion be­tween the phys­i­cal and the vir­tual world. Whether as part of an in­stal­la­tion or per­for­mance work, the vir­tual spaces he cre­ates are tech­no­log­i­cally trans­par­ent, so­phis­ti­cated and vir­tu­osic, as well as in­tu­itive to ex­pe­ri­ence and use.
