Ben Skea is a visual artist based in the UK. His art practice focuses on the intersection between the human condition and the digital – transforming time, frame and form with experimental animation, digital printmaking, moving image, sound and sculpture. Recent projects have reflected on contemporary anxieties of the body in flux, the fragmented self and the fluidity of realities. He primarily works with the computer to investigate the tension between memory, matter and materials of reproduction.
