Mark is Sam Haren’s first solo work that is a synthesis of VJing, object manipulation and performance. It dissects a 1992 Calvin Klein underwear commercial featuring rapper and model Marky Mark, and juxtaposes it with an array of materials that ‘comment’ on it. Mark uses this advert as a catalyst to explore notions of masculinity, violence, homoeroticism and homophobia.

The intimate performance sees Haren collecting and generating video, sound, text, movement, imagery live then remixing the elements into a constantly evolving, pumping pop-media jam.
