Benas Burdulis works between architecture, design, and art. His work distills ephemeral phenomena, specifically light and color, giving them a physical presence. The resulting objects and spaces bring people closer to nature and to their own experience of perception.
Benas grew up in sublime natural surroundings and has been exploring different ways of making for as long as he can remember. These qualities greatly inform the aesthetic that he gravitates toward.
There is always a tension between efficient technique and subtle effect in his work, which creates a bond between the method of making and the spatial experience. Through a cyclical process of research, making, testing, and reflection, his work culminates in objects or spaces that allow for perceptual, sensual, and emotional experiences.
His current practice attempts to elevate the beautiful effect of light falling onto a surface to a transcendent state, with the goal of creating environments that are optimistic, mysterious, and stimulating yet serene.
