Benjamin Forster was an artist in residence at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art from 6 July – 25 August 2010.

In conjunction with his research residency at SymbioticA at the University of Western Australia, Benjamin Forster utilised the PICA Studio to generate hundreds of drawings in his earnest pursuit of the value of artistic process whilst also interrogating the notion of cynicism.

After the public presentation of his visual research on the 10th of August 2010, all the work culminating from this residency were bundled up and discarded.

__________ is a living process and artworks are simply the detritus of this process.
