Marc Atkinson is a visual artist, originally from Peterborough and now based in Norwich. Working primarily with moving image, his work is concerned with place, landscape and identity. Marc will use his time at Metal to explore the marginal outskirts of Peterborough, the fastest growing city in the UK. He is interested in ‘uncharted’ territories where the urban meets the rural, its changing geography and contested spaces. Through film, photography and text, he will research and document the impact of environmental change, social history and government policies on the land.
