The widely ranging work of Justin Bennett is as rooted in the audiovisual and visual arts as it is in music. Central to his thinking and his work is a process-orientated approach and an interest in the elasticity of the concept of ’space’. Bennett produces (reworked) field recordings, drawings, performances, installations, photographs, videos and essays. He brings the characteristic potentials and capacities of each medium into every new work, paying no heed to the divisions between these media. Recently his work has focussed on urban development, technological progress and the relationship between architecture and sound. He gives lectures, hosts workshops, produces soundtracks for experimental filmmakers and is a member of the performance group BMB con.
Bennett studied Fine Art at Sheffield City Polytechnic, UK, followed courses in Sonology at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague and studied video with Elsa Stansfield at the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht.
