Ben Steele's newest body of work involves a complex process that includes installation, digital photography and painting. Beginning with the construction of a small scale, table-top installation that includes digital image projections captured in digital photography, Steele explores various aspects of image-making but more specifically he experiments with special effects techniques of filmmaking. From still images of these light projections and "set" constructions, he creates a painted images, many watery and mysterious in feeling -- depictions of a constructed and ephemeral reality.
