Ed Atkins works primarily with high-definition video and writing, exploring ideas of corporeality and materiality through digital and immaterial means. Using prosumer digital technology while exploiting the conventions of cinema and literature, Atkins attempts to materialise the body of the imagery, the equipment and the figure behind the camera. Atkins presents a new installation for Art Now, A Tumour (In English).
