about the cover Soho London 2 is from Mark Amerika’s “8-Bit Heaven” series. He captured modern views off the internet of street life in cities such as London, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo that were manipulated through an 8-bit filter. The resulting images are reminiscent of old video games. Wall-sized versions of the series were recently on display at the Estudio Figueroa-Vives in Havana, Cuba.
Amerika, who is founding chair of CMCI’s Intermedia Art, Writing and Performance Program and was recently named a Distinguished Professor, has exhibited his art internationally. Learn more at markamerika.com.
