Statement

On Study for Insomnia (2009)
Real-time generative installation, 1 channel video, 4 channels audio
"Expanding Horizons," Art+Shanghai Gallery

      "The strongest entry is American Ben Houge's video installation Study for Insomnia, which sets out to create a new language for landscape art, further honing his patented computer-generated algorithm programme that ingeniously takes recorded images and sounds and projects unpredictable combinations of both. The resulting video alternates between various landscape forms—clouds one minute, water the next—while also spanning emotional distances. Changes in light and form elicit different reactions from viewers; dark, manacing forms give way instantly to bursts of euphoric light. It is a beautiful work that satisfies both intellectually and aesthetically."
           --Time Out Shanghai, August 2010
