Biography

Benjamin Muzzin (born 1989) is a Swiss artist working predominantly with digital moving images. Since graduating in 2013 from the ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne in Switzerland, he has exhibited work worldwide; in places like Dubai, Hong Kong, London, Lyon and Miami. His work focuses on leaving the usual frame of the flat screen. He has already explored different mediums; such as kinetic installations, video mapping and VJing. This gave to his practice a direction that he is still exploring now: the idea that each animation should have its own custom designed display. Beside his artistic practice, he engages in commercial work with the Geneva based company SIGMASIX for clients such as Hermès, Tissot, Swatch and Vacheron Constantin.
