POTSDAM – Multimedia artist Bennett Morris will present his vision of congested atmospheres and savage ruins at SUNY Canton.

The Maine-based artist will be hosting a public lecture “Mixing Technology and Process” at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 16, in SUNY Canton’s Payson Hall Room 205.

Morris uses technology to augment and create his work, which is routed in the physical tangible world.

His eerie and seemingly post-apocalyptic landscapes are all created from photographs, and other mixed or multimedia creations.

He integrates bright colors and multiple layers to create depth in his compositions.

During his visit, he will also be holding a special workshop on evolving digital patterns for Graphic and Multimedia Design (GMMD) students beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, in Wicks Hall 211.

Morris currently teaches printmaking, photography and design at St. Joseph’s College and the Maine College of Art.

His presentation is part of an ongoing visiting artist initiative sponsored by SUNY Canton President Joseph L. Kennedy.
