Mark R Hancock is an editor, writer. He has written art criticism for the BBC, Furtherfield, NewMediaFix, Neural, Digicult, as well as several commisions from the Arts Council. His essay on Expanded Literature was included in Hothaus Papers from Vivid, as well as several exhibition catalogs and festival reports. His interests are the human condition and anything that causes our everyday lives and thoughts to derail for a moment, causing us to view the world anew for however briefly. Often this is an art work, sometimes just a great conversation with someone. If art works are able to capture or facilitate this process, then even better!
