Artist, production designer and theorist Marcos Lutyens (London, 1964) has exhibited internationally, including at documenta (13) in Kassel, Germany (2012), at the Centre Pompidou, Paris (2010), the Royal Academy of Arts, London (2010), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2010), Artists Space, New York (2009), the Kunstverein, Amsterdam (both 2009), and Ars Electronica, Linz (2004).
Lutyens has engaged in extensive experiments with Dr. V. S. Ramachandran, Director of the Center for Brain and Cognition at the University of California San Diego to explore the brain's nerual pathways in the synesthetic mind. His work with the mind has led him to develop events and exhibits that reflect research with specific social and ethnic groups, such as the Muxhe from the Zapotec culture of Southern Mexico.
Building on his investigations into consciousness and social dynamics, Lutyens has worked on large scale projects that involve interactivity, the environment and new technologies. Works include internal and external data tracking and brain wave monitoring that are generally invisible to the casual observed, and yet are important to us as the subjective processes of the inner mind.
Currently he is preparing the book Mindbrowser: The Architectures of Mind.
Marcos served as a judge in the Sadakichi Award for Experimental Work with Scent in 2015 and 2016.
