Mark Aerial Waller

Mark Aerial Waller is an artist, filmmaker, and writer. Previously a correspondent for Flash Art, Waller produces interdisciplinary, cinematic time travelogues that refute any predictable balance between our romance for the ancient past and our fetish for a streamlined future. By jamming multiple time streams and technical formats, he stages elliptical, psychological landscapes in which fantasy and documentary become almost interchangeable. Waller’s projects include Glowboys (1999), which examines the role of the nuclear power plant as both non-site and agent of seismic economic and cultural change; Reversion of the Beast Folk (2004) in which a polyurethane foam cave provides a stage for a re-reading of HG Wells’ The Island of Dr Moreau embellished by tribal masks and Brazilian sex rituals. He is also the founder of The Wayward Canon, a micro-salon for critical engagement and re-representation of cinema.
