Mark Dotzler is an American tech artist making sculpture.  He loves metal, science and technology.  Deep relational aesthetics sometimes play an important role in his work (similar to what Nicholas Bourriaud describes, but expanded and including some of Theodor Adorno’s thoughts on “truth-content”, societal commentary, et ceteraDanto’s “embodied meanings” also seems important to him).  Dotzler’s work is also influenced by the minimal artists of the 20th century, but instead of using the industrial materials of the 60’s period, he often uses today’s more scientifically advanced materials and many of the technological things that surround us all.  Computer microchips (silicon wafers), computer hard drives, aerials and thermionic valves (early binary code devices) are just some of the materials he began using when he first started making artwork at the age of forty.  His artwork contemplates technological nomenclature, relational dimensions and material societal issues.

Mark Dotzler has site-specific pieces at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation and has done major outdoor commissioned sculptural work for the Catholic Church.
