#NewAesthetic TV (Extended Play Remix)
Mark Amerika’s short video piece #NewAesthetic TV (Extended Play Remix) explores what is commonly known as glitch aesthetics and is the product of reworking source material from his transmedia piece Museum of Glitch Aesthetics (MOGA), 2012,  which was part of the Abandon Normal Devices Festival, Manchester, and Digital Aesthetic Exhibition, Harris Museum, Lancashire.

Honolulu Hermes
Mark Amerika’s video piece Honolulu Hermes pays tribute to the island of Oahu, Hawaii, where he has been living part-time since more than a decade. The work’s title, references the Olympian god Hermes in ancient Greek mythology and casts Amerika in the light of a trickster, a messenger, a poet and athlete whose manipulated film of himself walking on the beach seems to endow the artist with wings on his feet that allow him to float, to fly - even to walk on water.
