statement :: Marina Zurkow works with character and narrative in animated cartoons, interactive installations, print and pop objects. Zurkow's recent projects include The Space Invaders, a site-specific single channel video for WNET/PBS in New York; and the seven channel animated installation, Nicking the Never, which premiered at FACT in the U.K. in 2004. She's created the award-winning episodic cartoon Braingirl, chronicling a mutant-cute girl who wears her insides on the outside; Pussy Weevil, or How I Learned to Love the War, a vile cartoon persona who reacts to a viewer's proximity; and PDPal, a public art project for screen, web and mobile devices that allows a user to ěwrite her own cityî (with architect Scott Paterson and technologist Julian Bleecker). Zurkow's icons and characters have been incorporated into films, hotel design, lightboxes and clothing.

bio :: Zurkow's work has been exhibited at Sundance, the Rotterdam Film Festival, Ars Electronica, Creative Time, The Kitchen, the Walker Art Center, the Brooklyn Museum, SFMoMA, Eyebeam Atelier, and bitforms gallery, and has been broadcast on MTV, Fuji TV and PBS. She is a 2005 NYFA Fellow, a 2003 Rockefeller New Media Fellow, and received grants in 2005 from the New York State Council on the Arts, and in 2001-2002 from Creative Capital, the Jerome Foundation and the Walker Art Center. She teaches at NYU's Interactive Technology Program (ITP) and lives in Brooklyn.
