University Teacher in Creative Digital Technologies
Ben's background is in fine art practice specialising in painting, but over the past two decade he has moved into creative digital technologies and, most recently, photography. He is an experimentalist covering diverse areas from photographic imaging, web design, video to 2/3D drawing & modelling that are not sited within a particular specialism, but work with a wider remit of the creative industries and other academic subjects outside the humanities.
Ben currently teaches creative digital technologies to Graphic Communication, and Illustration Textiles and Fine Art undergraduate programmes in the School.
