About

Ersin Han Ersin is an artist and creative director of London based experiential studio Marshmallow Laser Feast. Ersin’s art practice combines a wide range of disciplines including sculpture, installation, live performance, and mixed reality.

His work illuminates the hidden natural forces that surround us, inviting participants to navigate with a sensory perception beyond their daily experience.  In these spaces, the known physical world is removed to reveal networks, processes and systems that are at once sublime, underpinned by research, and fundamental to life on Earth.

He has designed and directed for the likes of critically acclaimed Saatchi Gallery debut; We Live in an Ocean of Air, In The Eyes Of The Animal’ which was nominated for the Design of the Year by Design Museum Beazley Awards and won the Wired Innovation Award (2016). Most recently, he and the team at MLF won the Tribeca Film Festival Storyscapes Award for Innovation in Storytelling and Best VR Film at VR Arles Festival for ‘TreeHugger, Wawona’.

Ersin’s work has been exhibited around the World including Lisbon Triennial, Sundance Film Festival New Frontier, Tribeca Film Festival Storyscapes, Istanbul Design Biennial,  London, New York, and Shanghai.

As a guest lecturer Ersin also teaches at Interactive Architecture Lab at Bartlett School of Architecture.

Ersin Han was born in Turkey, 1984, studied Visual Communication Design at Gazi University, Ankara. He studied for a master’s degree at Goldsmiths University, Computational Studio Arts, London
