Ben Blount is a designer and printer interested in notions of American identity, race, and culture. His work draws on a common cultural language of objects, stories, stereotypes, and experiences as a starting point to draw attention to the disparities between what we see, and how we are seen. He re-presents implicit and explicit ideas of race that invites/provokes a conversation with the viewer.
