Ben Moren is a media artist whose process captures and reframes the environment through imagery, sound, and data to reveal and question anthropocentric viewpoints. His projects create paradoxical scenarios which explore human perception, simulation, time and scale shifts, documentation, preservation, and our enduring relationship with the natural environment. He works with filmmaking, performance, sculpture, and custom software systems.
Moren has created site-specific and mixed reality projects for Northern Spark Festival in Minneapolis, Kulturpark in Berlin, and the Weisman Art Museum. He has exhibited at the Soap Factory, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, IndieCade Los Angeles, and the Beijing Film Academy. He is a three-time recipient of the Minnesota Artist Initiative Grant and is a 2021/22 McKnight Visual Artist Fellow.
