Bay of Mars is a multimedia testing ground. An experimental landscape in its origins with its name borrowed from an undisclosed location, Bay of Mars migrates to likewise and otherwise friendly environments — online, and in the form of exhibitions, periodicals, time-based work, unique items, and occasional events. In collaboration with a broad group of contributors, Bay of Mars combines Urban States for events and talks, Correspondents for all printed matter, and most recently, the relational product line XRX for testing, production, and outfitting. Bay of Mars is jointly run by Karen Lohrmann and Stefano de Martino.
