Martin Osowski

Martin Osowski (1998) is an artist, filmmaker, and writer with a background in Aerospace Engineering and Lens-Based Media.

Martin Osowski was born on the unceded territories of the QayQayt First Nation in so-called western Canada, with his parents being first-generation immigrants from Poland. In 2016 he moved to the Netherlands and completed a BSc in Aerospace Engineering from the Delft University of Technology. He is a graduate from the Master of Lens-Based Media at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam.

His research and practice center around questions of ideology, media, and identity, and he looks to explore the mechanisms, implications, and contradictions of these topics across a variety of scales. He is interested in the moments when the ideological becomes intimate, in how our notions of reality and identity are mediated by the symbols and media environments that surround us, and in the politics of what emerges when our subjectivities become entangled in larger webs of social activity and power.

Martin Osowski's studio practice employs a range of media both analogue and digital. Lately he has been working with moving image and audio, and has an active research stream interrogating the politics of digital interfaces, where he employs both spatial installation and written research. He also collaborates on the running of Faun, a community based publication and research collective that aims to develop a discourse towards the theory and praxis of manifesting alternative worlds.
