Andrew Benson flies slightly under the radar, doing design work for Cycling 74, teaching at SFAI in San Francisco, maintaining an active artistic practice and doing visual work for Name Brand Stars that you certainly have seen. But Andrew doesn't really long for a spread in People Magazine; rather, he is constantly diving into edge-case technology looking for new ways of drawing emotion out of media art viewers. In the podcast, I recall my first interaction with his work - and having a visceral reaction based on the movements of a simple drawing. This sort of expression is key to Andrew's art, and in this podcast he talks openly about how he approaches art technology in the pursuit of these feelings.
Another great conversation, and it opened my eyes to opportunities in the visual space that I'd not previously considered. Enjoy!
