As an Interactive Developer, Ben likes to devise new ways for people to interact with technology, and encourage users to rethink their idea of what interfaces should be. In this 20x20 talk, Ben shows us a few fascinating examples of the interfaces that he's made, including a couple that may surprise you.

Thus Spake Statis Beatnik

BY STEWART MORRIS
@ VOL 11 ON SEP 06, 2018

Aligned with the PechaKucha principle to 'think visual', digital creative Statis Beatnik believes that "words are very limited in being able to explain many of the most important human experiences. Try to explain the colour blue and you'll see an infinite amount of words it takes in comparison to showing just one image". In this vivid presentation, he shares his views on humanity and speculates on possible digital futures.
