ABOUT

Ben Cruachan crop.jpg

I have nineteen years experience working as a photographic and sound artist. I explore the relevance of belonging for personal and environmental wellbeing, collaborating with interesting people in fascinating places, while starting conversations around language, culture and environment. To this end, I have held residencies in Canada, Australia, Scotland and Bolivia, and been an Arts Fellow of the Australian Antarctic Division. I have presented work internationally in 45 exhibitions. A recent highlight includes an exhibition commissioned for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Cultural Festival (2014) and its subsequent Australian tour (2015 to 2019), which reached 18,110 visitors.
