Ben Bogart

"I am a non-binary agender adisciplinary artist working for nearly two decades with generative computational processes and have been inspired by knowledge in philosophy and the natural sciences. I create Machine Subjects: systems that use collected material that is reconfigured in the creation of structures that both resemble, and differ from, source material. Source material is most often lens-based but I have also appropriated pop culture such as cinema and the canon of western painting. In some cases, I collect materials in advance of the creative process, and in others I use in situ cameras to collect “live” to feed artworks that evolve and change in relation to changes in the environment. Key themes of my work include site-specificity and responsiveness, the relationship between subjects and objects, imagination and reality, and the constructive role of boundaries."
