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.
