Ben Meyerson is a writer and musician who splits his time between Granada, Spain and Toronto, Ontario. He holds an MFA from the University of Minnesota. He is interested in cultural mediations of space and time, diasporic memory, material processes, resonant textures and whatever else might reveal the places where there is an entanglement between ecology, history and desire.
A large portion of the content on this website is expressed in the form of projects: each one represents a discontinuous span of time devoted to the development of interrelated sets of poems, songs, or articles that revolve around a specific range of similarly pitched ideas. In order to achieve maximum accessibility, the site also provides pages wherein each individual medium, be it music, poetry, or prose, is gathered together — regardless of any ‘project’ designation. Ben’s hope is that it will be possible for visitors to find an entry point into his ideas according to their comfort zone, and then broaden and push themselves past it, investigating how different media, when used in concert, can expose divergent and complementary contours of the same conceptual meshwork.
