Porter’s Found Poems have the same seminal position as Duchamp’s objets trouvées. — Dick Higgins
Both images and texts are collected from various sources such as advertisements, junk mail, instruction booklets, scientific documents, etc… Taking the original material out of their context and re-presenting them in another visual stunning format, Ben recreates and gives new meaning to the works.
