Bent Matter


Event: Techforms
When: SepT 27
Where: Open Studios


Vancouver’s Ben Reeder, a core member of Bentmatter, looks to challenge the conception of video projection. By incorporating live mixing from a variety of sources; live feed, video feedback, loops and custom content, Bent Matter has looked to a variety of combinations and sources throughout their work. One of the main focuses of Ben Reeder’s film-making has been on the organic world around us, and how this can be distorted and manipulated in a technological setting. Film and visuals have included New Forms Festival, Shambhala, Soundwave, Mutek, and a European Tour’s for Wagon Repair
