Inner Space Artifacts
The ‘artifacts’ are the ideas of Ben Ridgway, and the ‘inner space’ is best described as the deep recesses of his imagination. Lest we fool you into thinking this video was created with actual artifacts found in space.
“Artifacts from inner space transformed into moving digital sculptures.”

When creating experimental animations I often use intuition and visualization techniques to come up with ideas. Often times these ideas come to me as a flash of insight. Other times I must plumb the depths of my psyche to find novel approaches to making moving images. The film “Inner Space Artifacts” was a journey of deep excavation into the world of abstract ideas. The moving objects in the animation I regard as “artifacts” that I uncovered and shaped into ephemeral moving digital sculptures.
