Benjy Russell was born in rural Oklahoma, and currently resides in rural Tennessee, where he has found a thriving and diverse community of queer and trans people and collaborators. He is compelled by the conversation that happens at the intersection of philosophy, science, and art— a way to see the world prismatically and to unlearn harmful, antiquated social structures. Informed by science fiction as a model for how to shape a more desirable future, Russell’s work largely utilizes in-camera effects, using sculpture, studio lights, and mirrors to allude to magical realism.
