BIO:David Bennett is a digital artist, motion designer, and creative director, whose work is centered on the moving image. Drawn to immediacy and impermanence, he explores hyper-saturated visuals that oscillate between abstract and figurative digitized glimpses of daily life and random ephemera. Juxtaposing the deliberate use of pattern, color, and rhythm with automatic, generative, and procedural techniques, the works themselves are frequently deconstructed and remixed as digital seeds for subsequent iteration. Music and sound are an inspiration and guiding force that often drives his rhythmic and sequencing decisions. He lives and works in Nashville, Tennessee.
My intent is to present an accessible body of work that is appealing and entertaining to a wide-reaching audience. Playful exploration and discovery are my guiding principles, fueled by a lifelong fascination with the moving image. In these selections, I aspire to enliven the experience of viewers through the use of pattern, color, and rhythm.

Film: Artificial flowers commemorating the moment of sea change in this generation.
RADIATION serves to commemorate a moment forever altered in art making — the end of one era and the beginning of another. The central “artificial” flowers were created with text to image generative AI. The motion is recursive video feedback style animation achieved with After Effects while the audio is created with a series of hardware synthesizers captured and mixed with Audition and Ableton Live.
