Currently residing in the Santa Cruz/ Bay area, Benzy studied Digital Art and New Media at UCSC, and previously Human Ecology at College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine. Benzy’s favorite medium is under-the-camera animation. She also works in experimental video, kinetic sculpture and digital media.

Her work explores the tension between mass produced material objects and our inescapable primitive endowment of power to those objects. Techno-animism as our current state of being, and a site of contradictory truths, in which we explore animism as a path out of capitalist exploitation and ecological disaster.
