  • Mark J. Stock is an artist, scientist, and programmer who creates still and moving images and sculpture combining elements of nature, physics, chaos, computation, and algorithm. His work explores the tension between the natural world and its simulated counterpart, between organic and inorganic, digital and analog, and structure and fluid. Mark eschews the ‘black box’ nature of commercial software— his work is created with scientifically-accurate research software, mostly of his own design.

    Stock has been in over 80 curated and juried exhibitions since 2000, including Ars Electronica, ASPECT Magazine, and SIGGRAPH. He has spoken at numerous scientific, graphics, and art conferences and workshops, and has published papers in a variety of fields. Mark completed his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan in 2006, supports scientific visualization efforts at NREL in Colorado, and creates artwork in his studio in Somerville, Massachusetts.
