Ben Rivers, Origin of the Species

Ben Rivers, Origin of the Species

Dates: 26 November – 5 December 2009 | Location: Picture This Atelier, Bristol

Picture This presents  two works by Ben Rivers, Origin of the Species and Slow Action. Both are about man’s relationship to nature and the legacy of Charles Darwin: Slow Action (which, appropriately enough, is a work in progress) addresses island biogeography, considering how life might flourish and develop on isolated landmasses; Origin of the Species focuses on a 75-year-old amateur inventor’s engagement with Darwin’s seminal book, which has recently celebrated its 150th anniversary.

There will be a chance to see the two works screened and hear Ben talking about their development tonight (25 November) at the Atelier from 6:30pm. Full details are available at the Picture This site. Oh, and don’t forget to check out Ben’s interview with APEngine from earlier this year, or our showcase of his gorgeous eco road movie I Know Where I’m Going.
