Ben Moren: Reformed Topographies
OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2018 | 6-8 PM
Rivers from around America flow into a video confluence created by Moren. Video screens become the rippling rivers along the floor of RAC, with sculptural rocks formed in exact replica of rivers filmed from California to Wisconsin. Reformed Topographies is a series of video sculptures by Ben Moren which present cross sections of rivers and streams where stones interrupt the flow. Acrylic topographies placed on top of the screens optically draw the image of the stones back into the third dimension. The surface of the water and the surface of the screen converge to create a new kind of flow.
