Mark Lewis is a Canadian artist who lives and works in London. His work explores the pictorial possibilities (or impossibilities) of film. Short (usually less than 5 minutes), silent and in most cases consisting of (or appearing to be) single uninterrupted shots, Lewis's films are mediations on everyday life and the way in which traditional modern forms (including film itself) are experienced both as 'failures' and horizons for continued utopic possibility.

Lewis is also a founding editor of Afterall Journal, and the series editor of the "One Work" series of books published by Afterall Books. His essay "Ist die Moderne unsere Antike?" is featured in the current Documenta Magazine No1 Modernity?
