Ben Bogart

Ben Bogart is a generative artist primarily working in installation and print whose practice is located at the intersection of art and science. His installations create content live in response to their sensed environment. Physical modelling, chaos, feedback systems, evolutionary algorithms, computer vision, and machine learning have been used to inform and engage in his creative process. Ben holds a Ph.D. in Interactive Arts and Technology from Simon Fraser University. In his Ph.D. research, he proposes an Integrative Theory of cognitive and neurobiological mechanisms of perception, mental imagery, mind-wandering, and dreaming. This cognitive framework is manifest in a computational model and site-specific generative art installation: Dreaming Machine #3 |
