plexiglass, resin, steel pipe, paperstone

Ben’s contribution to The Window Art Project at Pharmaca is made of salvaged acrylic sheets, resin, steel pipe, and paperstone. These pieces are used to build fragmented, yet graceful, representations of clouds that seemingly float, even though anchored to a system of plumbing.  He builds pieces in a quick and often simple way, using common materials found in hardware stores and salvage yards.
