A Space Windows

Scrap Pieces is a collaborative meditation on the physical components of images. For this 4 channel video project, Benivolski borrowed materials from the studios of Laurie Kang, Jeff Bierk, Nadia Belerique, and Celia Perrin Sidarous. Filmed in the intimate style of Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR), Benivolski soothes the viewer by gently handling debris and scrap materials such as small pieces of metal, silicone, plaster casts, test strips, glass, wires and transparencies.
