1961 Born in Springfield, NJ (US)

Mark Napier has been creating artwork exclusively for the web since 1995. He combines his training as a painter with 15 years of expertise as a software developer to create "art interfaces", software that addresses issues of authority, ownership and territory in the virtual world.

Napier is known for his wide range of internet projects including The Shredder, an alternative browser that dematerializes the web, Digital Landfill, an endless archive of digital debris, and Feed, a web filter commissioned by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for the 010101 show. Noted for his innovative use of the web as an art medium and for his interactive artwork, Napiers work has been reviewed in the New York Time, Forbes Best of the Web, ArtByte, Wired News, Art Forum, Publish, the Guardian, the Village Voice and many international publications.
Scholarship 2001 New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Computer Arts.

2007 New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Computer Arts

Awards 1999 The Shredder awarded honorable mention by Ars Electronica 99.

2000 Fraunhofer Society prize for Point-to-Point.

2001 Greenwall Foundation grant for Point-to-Point.

2002 Creative Capital grant.
