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. Wood has positioned himself as a groundbreaker in the merging of art, history and technology. He is especially devoted to using contemporary media to animate public spaces with images of their lost histories, and exposing how histories of marginalized and forgotten communities may be visually introduced into the physical landscape of the present. Based in San Francisco, his work has been shown in San Francisco, Mexico City, Honolulu, Hawaii and London.

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