Those looking to travel through a black hole and keep your boots on: look no further. Check out more of his work after the jump.
Forged out of the post apocalyptic wasteland following the Great Tidal Wave, Los Angeles born artist Ben Bigelow seeks to analyze our culture’s reality through bizarre and immersive creations of fantasy. He is currently working on a series that compares different natural disasters to our emotional, cultural and spiritual states. Phantasmagoria exudes out of multimedia installations and videos, where a unique aesthetic follows radical content. Above all the artist is concerned with the immediate experience of art, and what emotional associations this experience lets loose. Having studied video art with Suzie Silver, electronics with Osman Khan, and robotic sculpture with Ken Rindalo, Ben Bigelow is able to realize a concept no matter the challenges. He has a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and lives and works in Los Angeles.
