Yukon Media Artists
Marten Berkman is a visual artist, filmmaker and photographer living in Canada’s subarctic. The theme of his work is the land and our relationship with it as an industrial culture. His practice has led to explorations ranging from the manufactured spaces at the heart of our urban centres, to the wilderness of remote environments on six continents. His work appears locally, nationally and internationally in collections, festivals, broadcast, and speaking engagements. His art appears in public and private galleries, and festivals such as Interactive Futures and Electric Fields. Work with his clients and partners range from photography for Canadian Geographic magazine, HD and full dome video production for Yukon and Yukon First Nations at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, to photography and film production for the National Film Board of Canada.
