Mark Lyken (1973) is an artist and filmmaker based in Thornhill, rural Dumfriesshire, Scotland.
He creates film, sound works, performances and installations that explore identity, place and the interplay between nature, industry and culture.
This has led to collaborations with artists, communities and academics, most notably from the University of Aberdeen’s School of Biological Sciences.
His work has been presented in Brazil, Taiwan, South Korea, Mexico, India, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Italy and widely across the UK.
His films are distributed by The Film-Makers’ Cooperative, New York.
