Mark Dion's work examines the ways in which dominant ideologies and public institutions shape our understanding of history, knowledge, and the natural world. Appropriating archeological and other scientific methods of collecting, ordering, and exhibiting objects, Dion creates artworks that question the distinctions between 'objective' ('rational') scientific methods and 'subjective', ('irrational') influences.
Mark Dion is featured in the Season 4 episode "Ecology" of the Art21 series "Art in the Twenty-First Century".
