Artist Statement
Ben has always had a drive to create. Being a visual person, Ben found it easier to create images or items to articulate his thoughts. These thoughts range from environmentalism and politics to our sense of time and our place in the universe. This art is usually created with either salvaged materials or with state of the art computer technology. This odd symbiosis is central to all of Ben's work: Understanding the old while living the new.
