About Projecting History in Public Space

I am a site-specific visual artist and passionate story teller. I use video and site-specific installations to communicate meaningful stories about people and place.

Since 1999 Ben Wood has established himself by offering a reawakening of history exposing vital realities of our current time and place. Ben Wood is a public video artist based in San Francisco. In his work with large-scale projection and video installations, he combines media art with historical subject matter. Over the past 20 years, he has created over 20 video installations, using contemporary media to animate public spaces with images of their unrecognized history, and exposing how histories of forgotten communities may be visually reintroduced into the physical landscape of the present. Wood is known for large-scale displays in San Francisco on Coit Tower, Dewey Monument, Haas-Lilienthal House Museum, Temple Emanuel, Saint Ignatius Church, within Mission Dolores, the Cliff House and at the East-West Center in Honolulu, the Museo Nacional de Arte in Mexico City and the London Jewish Museum.

Here's what I'm working on right now. Here's my resume.
