Marjolein Blom is a visual artist who lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She studied photography (BA) at the Fotoacademie, Amsterdam and graduated with a project about time travelling, titled Double Slit Experiment. The eponymous book was shortlisted for the FOAM Unseen Dummy Award in 2014.
Her 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. In her graduation project, Double Slit Experiment (2014), called after Richard Feynman’s eponymous famous experiment, Blom conducted a study towards travelling in time. Her latest work ‘A Monkey Peeled an Onion…’ and 'Spare Parts' focus on the history and science of the nature of the vacuum.
Over the past years, her work has been exhibited in different international shows on fairs and festivals including Art Rotterdam, Unseen, Fotomuseum Den Haag, Fotografia Europea and Emerging Talents (Italy).
