Benjamin EarlBenjamin Earl is a Rotterdam-based Designer and Media Artist with an interest in the digitisation of everyday life, the rendering and simulation of physical environments, and digital communication and knowledge sharing practices. In his work he uses moving image and computer programming to create films, installations and performances that reveal entangled narratives and complex power structures.

His work involves looking closely at how life is rendered in digital environments, such as depictions of nature on screen, mass group communication and the precise methods of synchronising clocks around the world. His work has been exhibited at Impakt Festival (Utrecht), Bureau Europa (Maastricht), Fibre Festival (Amsterdam) and CIVA Festival (Vienna). He has a BA in Graphic Design from Falmouth University, UK and an MA in Non Linear Narrative from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague.
