Ben Farquharson — Assimilation

Posted on July 3, 2012

Ben Farquharson is a multi-discipline artist: using mixed media, sound installation and video to examine the decomposition and entropy of already digested information.

I’m from Zimbabwe and have been living in England for ten years now.  I like to amalgamate influences from both cultures in my work.
I work with digested information; its decomposition and entropy thereafter. The modulation of light and sound; the process of disintegration of representation and phenomena. I use paint as well as film and sound. All of which inform a practice grappling with the acquisition of knowledge; how an individual is assimilated with phenomena and the germination of true thought through an experiential submergence at the hands of artistic intervention.

Ben Farquharson studied Art Practice at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
