Author’s Biography

Mark Amerika, who has been named a “Time Magazine 100 Innovator” as part of their continuing series of features on the most influential artists, scientists, entertainers and philosophers into the 21st century, has had four retrospectives of his digital art work. Recently Amerika has begun a new research project devoted to what he calls Life Style Practice (LSP).
