Marjolein Blom (1984) is a visual artist who lives and works in Amsterdam. She studied photography (BA) at the Fotoacademie Amsterdam and graduated with a project about timetraveling, titled Double Slit Experiment. The eponymous book was shortlisted for the FOAM Unseen Dummy Award in 2014. Marjolein Blom’s photographs are the result of a fascination for scientific theories that are often considered counterintuitive, like those of quantum physics, special relativity and the inner workings of our universe. Blom’s latest work ‘A Monkey Peeled an Onion…’ focusses on the history and science of the nature of the vacuum.
Over the past years her work have been exhibited in different international group shows on fairs and festivals including Unseen and Fotografia Europa.
