Ben Moren is a Minneapolis-based media artist working at the intersection of filmmaking, performance, and software/hardware development. His projects investigate the gaps between our increasingly digital existence and the unmediated natural world.
Moren has created site-specific projects for the Northern Spark Festival in Minneapolis and Kultur Park in Berlin, Germany, and he recently completed a residency with Blast Theory in the UK. He is working on a mobile phone project for the Weisman Art Museum, an experiential video for the third Minnesota Biennial at the Soap Factory, and a micro theater project for the third Beijing Film Academy International New Media Art Triennial in Beijing, China.
Moren is currently a visiting artist at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
