The Road Out is an audio work created as a guided walk specifically for the Tree Museum site. The narrator leads visitors along the dirt road with questionable descriptions of flora and fauna, and invokes tango music to keep away bears.
Working in media that include photography, performance, drawing, sculpture, installation, video and more, Mark's approach is always straightforward and never predictable.
