Interactive installation art

About

Marpi is a Polish born San Francisco based Digital Artist. His artworks are interactive, scalable, and multiplatform, giving anyone ability to shape them, and create their own.

Currently he is working with Obscura as Director of Web and Experiential Design, previously working on projects for clients including Disney, Google, Magic Leap, and Adobe.

His artwork has exhibited internationally including ArtFutura Roma, Contemporary Istanbul, Burning Man and Oregon Eclipse, has been publicly and professionally recognized, receiving nominations and winning several awards including Golden Lions, SXSW Interactive and .NET Magazine site of the year.
