Ben Aron is an artist and technologist who lives and works in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His investigations focus on value, economies, and the existential themes inextricably related. Practicing in fields as diverse as interactive installation, video, and text, Aron has presented projects frequently outside of the gallery context. His work has often been exhibited through events, performances, and screenings. Aron has also been involved in a number of public projects–including Lumen Collective’s site-specific light sculpture Urban Planning: The History of Public vs. Private Space in the Heart of Downtown Boston, and the Billboard Project, where his National Student Debt Clock was displayed on a LED roadside billboard in Richmond, VA. Aron holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design where he studied in the Studio for Interrelated Media (SIM), and a Masters of Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design in Digital + Media.
