“As an artist I believe it is a duty to find new and unexplored ways to express a subject. With that in mind, I made it a mission to find a way to express my inner thoughts, opinions and moods in a way that was my own. After two years of obsessive experimentation, I found a new unique technique of expression which is pure photography (not computer created). I have given my images the obscure dream-like quality of the inner self that needs more than a quick glance to interpret and although I hesitantly put my work in the genre of abstract, I have a clear vision of what each photo will represent from thought to creation”. – Taylor Jorjorian

‘ There are grand implications of error here that lead to questions, such as who exactly has been playing Giant Tetris? What were they trying to do? Could I have done better? Is the city grid similar to a computer game or different? What brain-space am I in when Iâ€™m playing games on my computer? Is it more or less alert than when Iâ€™m waiting in line for a sandwich? The work seeks to challenge conceptions of the North end of Sydneyâ€™s CBD as an orderly, socially cold grid and beckons viewers to assess their own level of interaction, play and hacking within the city ‘.
Meditating on the rapturous designs of the ephemera of our time, Ben Weiner transforms prosaic objects such as aluminum foil, paint, and hair gel into ambiguous, often erotic landscapes of the mind. Weinerâ€™s images are enlarged to the point of being nearly unrecognizable, making the paintings hover on the brink of extreme representation and abstract sublimity. The altered scale combined with dramatic lighting and subtle photographic distortions produces an uncanny effect characteristic of the digital age. (via Fine Art in Space)
