Ben Joseph Andrews (Australia)

Ben Joseph Andrews is a director working in immersive mixed/extended realities (XR), with a focus on multi-modal installations and performance

Working with Emma Roberts, his work integrates VR within bespoke multi-sensory environments and performance-driven installations to create collective experiences ranging from the transcendent to the ecstatic, the transformational to the sublime. Projects have been exhibited at Sundance New Frontier, IDFA, SXSW, CPH:DOX, Sheffield Doc/Fest and the Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF).

Andrews’ interest in the visceral and bodily affect of XR is supported by a practice-led PhD at the University of Melbourne, exploring the emergent framework of sensory experience and composition in virtual immersion. In 2022, he was awarded Best Direction for Immersive/Interactive by the Australian Directors Guild (ADG).

Ben is based in Linton/Wathaurong Country.
