bizarre caricature outfits, speaking in strange dialects, shifting roles
and characters as though in time with the wildly experimental music. Everywhere
in the dimly lit bunker blinked tiny red LEDs - the record lights on dozens
of hand-held video cameras: memory of this event would require dozens
of separate points of view.
Jason Mogus (Vancouver Resident and President, Communicopia.Net) Writes :
... this group, which provides a forum for emerging Vancouver artists to show their work. Inter:mission also provides a form of artist in residence program, supporting out of town artists with their work in Vancouver.
Over the years I have enjoyed very much the artistic projects of Mark and his group, which have included hosted special events in their studio, outdoor performance art pieces, and indoor musical and visual art shows. In particular I appreciate what seems to be the primary goal of the group -- building community and bringing awareness to emerging issues affecting our culture and our world.
I find that this special mission resonates through all of their pieces, and they have touched me deeply over the years, and as such I consider myself a strong supporter of their work. My experience is that much of inter:mission’s work is "just beyond the horizon" enough to be challenging to fund through traditional sources, and I respect Mark very much for his support of this work. For me this makes the work all the more relevant and pertinent to facilitate deeper understanding of the current state of affairs in our city and our world.
