Benjamin Santiago: SWOON

Benjamin Santiago is a New York based artist, designer and programmer who combines all his creative talents into superb performance projects like 'SWOON.'

Benjamin describes 'SWOON' as "an ode to the boob.. it is an attempt to encompass both the bitter-sweet, embarrassing intensity of physical attraction." The piece is comprised of brightly coloured clay breasts connected to a MaKey Makey kit, which allows Benjamin to tweak and twiddle the "breasts" as input controls to his musical performance. The performance is also accompanied by a strangely appealing backdrop of animated visuals, comprised of pulsating and morphing breasts!
