Artist in Residence – Ben Brown

Ben Brown uses steel and wood to make art and furniture. For the vast majority his pieces use reclaimed and salvaged materials are used.  The deep-grained patinas of weathered steel mixed with an industrial shape makes for a rough and naturalized geometry—a sort of aesthetic of primitive science.
Much of Brown’s inspiration has come from natural phenomena and his degree in the History of Math & Science.  Brown uses geometric and irregular shapes to construct scientific instruments, such as mural instruments, for measuring the altitude of stars.
