Benton C Bainbridge (born January 22, 1966) is an American media artist known for creating single channel video, interactive artworks, immersive installations and live visual performances with custom digital, analog and optical systems of his own design.[1]

He is faculty at School of Visual Arts MFA Computer Arts department.[2] His work is collected in the collection and The "ETC: Experimental Television Center Archives" in the Rose Goldsen Media Archives at Cornell University and The Kitchen Archive at the Getty Research Institute.[3] From 2006-2007, Bainbridge was Education Fellow at Eyebeam.[4] He has since realized many projects there, including the inaugural MIXER event[5] and VHS portraits.[6]

His early career focused on the live creation of electronic cinema in collaboration with other artists and anticipated today's VJ collectives. Bainbridge's aesthetic technique is characterized by extensive realtime manipulation analog and digital media. His work is presented in both art and entertainment spaces ranging from museums to stadiums.

He has shown across five continents, collaborating with artists including the Beastie Boys, Kaki King, Pauline Oliveros,[7][8] V. Owen Bush,[9] Abigail Child,[10] Nick Didkovsky, Bobby Previte,[11][12] Jin Hi Kim,[13] Dream Theater,[14] Barbara Held,[15] Lonnie Holley and Tonstartssbandht,[16] among many others.

Bainbridge has shown his work in venues such as the Whitney Museum of American Art,[17] Museum of Modern Art, Lincoln Center,[18] Madison Square Garden,[19] The Kitchen (NYC),[20] EMPAC (Troy, NY),[21] the American Museum of Natural History, SFMOMA (San Francisco),[22] Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, D.C.), Dallas Video Festival, Boston Cyberarts Festival, Eyebeam,[23] Mercat des les Flors (Barcelona), LUX2006 (Sevilla), Auditorium Parco della Musica (Roma), Test-Portal (Amsterdam),[24] Sonic Light (Amsterdam),[25] Wien Modern (Vienna),[26] Inventionen (Berlin), Teatro Colón CETC (Buenos Aires),[27] CELCIT (Managua), Xi'an China International Horticultural Exposition 2011, Korean Festival (Seoul), Good Vibrations (Australia), and MTV Networks (global).

Early life and education[edit]

Bainbridge was born in Cleveland, Ohio, where his father was an electronics and computer engineer with NASA's Lewis Research Center and his mother wrote, photographed and made artwork with paint and fabric. He was first exposed to abstract video art on Public Television through the analog effects of The Electric Company which made him realize "...that anything could be manipulated with video".[28] Later, Bainbridge's family moved to the exurbs of Erie, Pennsylvania where he met and began making drawings, plastic sculptures and food art with Philp R. Bonner. He attended General McLane High School, in Edinboro, PA, where he began collaborating with his fellow artist students, presenting several multimedia performances in the school incorporating Super 8mm film, 35mm slides, 12" Reel to reel and VHS video technology, along with performers, costumes, art objects, and music. At this time, Bainbridge also made comix, performance art and electronic music, showing at Erie area galleries and art spaces as well as non-art venues like swimming pools and other public spaces.

After high school, Bainbridge moved to New York City and immersed himself in New York’s Lower East Side art scene while studying film and TV at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. As an undergrad, Bainbridge chose video as his primary medium and began presenting work at art spaces and clubs like Space 2B (aka “The Gas Station”) and Danceteria. Working at Rafik as an engineer, editor and salesperson introduced him to many artists, personalities, ideas and esthetics. At Rafik, Bainbridge worked on projects for Robin Byrd, Richard Kern and Boogie Down Productions' "The Bridge Is Over" video.

In 1989, Bainbridge graduated from Tisch with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. That same year his short video “Betabet” was screened at Museum of Modern Art in the Film/Video Arts 21 program and he was awarded his first residency at Experimental Television Center.[29] As part of this residency, Bainbridge began his first live video performance experiments with collaborators Philip R. “Bulk Foodveyor” Bonner, Jonathan “Naval Cassidy” Giles, Chad Strohmayer and Andrew Koontz.[30][31] These early experiments convinced Bainbridge that video art can be made much as music: in real time, in collaboration, in public, via the free manipulation of all the tools of the medium.

Live visuals for the Beastie Boys[edit]

Bainbridge co-designed multichannel, realtime video for two Beastie Boys' global tours and TV appearances including nearly all of MTV Networks' channels on four continents. For the Beasties' "The Mix Up" tour, Bainbridge's video designs used RGB LED technology to play visuals on Spike Brant's (Performance Environment Design Group) giant video mobile. For Vh1, CMT and other networks, Bainbridge designed and performed video for numerous live televised performances. Bainbridge's canvases are often large-scale displays - including LEDs, giant projections, and domes. He co-authored video content and acted as visual performance artist (VJ) on their "To the 5 Boroughs" tour.[32]

Intersection arts[edit]

In 2014, Bainbridge founded Intersection Arts, LLC to continue his media design and production for museums. Intersection Arts designs immersive media for the 10th Season of "One Step Beyond"—a monthly audio visual event at American Museum of Natural History.[33] Bainbridge has been the resident media artist, curator and visual performer for One Step Beyond since its inception in 2007, co-producing the show with Glowing Pictures for the first seven seasons.
