Ben Pearce is a New Zealand sculptor and contemporary artist working with wood, found objects and bronze. Pearce’s art explores memory and reconciles it with a recent and common ‘ancestor’ to us all: childhood.

The website follows and examines Pearce’s journey as a contemporary sculpturist. It makes visible the quirks and tragedies of his mind — and it’s recording machinations. I wanted to manifest Pearce ‘the Artist’, as Pearce ‘the website’.

This project won gold at the DINZ Best Awards. "An intimate portrait, its considered nature perfectly reflects the artist and his work. The judges praised this as a self-driven yet guided experience through the work, with each project triggered by a memory and linked to a defining word."
