As of Friday, May 20th, Ben Weiner‘s video work entitled Na + (aq) + C5H8NO – (aq) NaC5H8NO4(s) can be found in Bruno David Gallery‘s New Media Room. Representing his most recent form of photographic exploration, the piece utilizes stop motion technique to combine thousands of photographs into a swirling, coalescing landscape of lavish texture that is mysteriously familiar, transcendent, and disorienting all at the same time. Depicting magnifications of synthetic materials, the resulting terrain fuses object, subject, and medium in an exploration of beauty, surface, abstraction, and consumer/art object duality.
The exhibition will run though July 2 in all of its opulent glory. Visit the exhibition’s website for more information.
