computer art software communication physics writing

Benny grew up in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where some very kind and thoughtful folks introduced him to agent-based modeling and complexity science as a kid. Most of his interests revolve around communication––how we interact with each other, and with our machines, make sense out of nonsense, etc. He has school degrees in physics and language art, and has worked with computers, software, and various internet technologies for about 10 years. At the time of writing, he is reading Dhalgren, by Samuel Delany, Sister Outsider, by Audre Lorde, and a book by Vilém Flusser about human culture from the perspective of a vampire squid.
