This captivating animation by Ben Ridgway is a stimulating exploration of the mind’s inner workings. The amount of detail and complexity of this ever-morphing, geometric realm plays with the depth of our visual perception, creating an astonishing spectacle that one may find it difficult to look away from.
“When creating experimental animations I often use intuition and visualization techniques to come up with ideas. Often times these ideas come to me as a flash of insight. Other times I must plumb the depths of my psyche to find novel approaches to making moving images. The film “Inner Space Artifacts” was a journey of deep excavation into the world of abstract ideas. The moving objects in the animation I regard as “artifacts” that I uncovered and shaped into ephemeral moving digital sculptures.” – Ben Ridgway
