Mark Frauenfelder & Kevin Mack – Between Order and Chaos from The Avant/Garde Diaries on Vimeo. Directed by Francesca Mirabella & Peter J. Brant / Produced by Benjamin Gilovitz / Music by Nicholas Krgovich / Sound design by Brent Kiser.
Mark Frauenfelder is a writer, editor, and illustrator who came of age in the halcyon days of handmade zines and punk rock. He carried that DIY ethos with him as the co-founder and editor of the zine-turned-blog bOING bOING, a self-proclaimed “directory of wonderful things,” which focuses on technology and inspiration. These days, he is the editor-in-chief of MAKE, a magazine that teaches and encourages do-it-yourself living. Frauenfelder first discovered Kevin Mack through his special effects work on the film Fight Club; however, it was Mack’s strictly artistic work that really peaked Frauenfelder’s interest. Mack’s art takes the vast and still uncharted area of digital technology and brings it into the physical world. The results are images printed on canvas which vacillate between abstraction and photorealism, and virtual sculptures transformed into the tangible via three-dimensional printing technology.
