Michael Naimark is a media artist and researcher who often explores “place representation.”
Naimark helped found a number of prominent research labs including the MIT Media Laboratory (1980), the Atari Research Lab (1982), the Apple Multimedia Lab (1987), Lucasfilm Interactive (1989), and Interval Research Corporation (1992). At MIT, Naimark helped put together the Aspen Movie Map, a hypermedia project.
Naimark's artwork is included in the permanent collections of the American Museum of the Moving Image in New York, the Exploratorium in San Francisco, and the ZKM | Center for Arts and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany. His large-scale installations include projected living rooms spray painted white and stereo-panoramic rooms with rotating floors.
In 2015, Naimark served as Google’s first “resident artist” in their new VR division.
