Ben Skea is a visual artist living and working in Glasgow, UK.
His art practice often reflects 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. Recent projects have focused on the intersection between the human condition and the digital.
Selected group exhibitions and screenings include: The 8th Day Human Created Machine, Athens Digital Arts Festival, Greece (2018); The Wrong Water Pavilion, The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale, online (2017-18); one-and-the-same, Radiophrenia, CCA, Glasgow, UK (2017); Experimental Art Interludes, Supernova, Denver, USA (2017); Technonatural, Gossamer Fog, London, UK (2016), Re-Adjuster, Inverness Museum & Art Gallery, UK (2015).
