Kinetikon Pictures is a project of writer, filmmaker and photographer Michael Benson. Since 1995 Benson and Kinetikon have produced a series of books, exhibitions, films, and photographic prints. These works have focused on various areas, with the films largely exploring the intersection of art, ideology, and mass media; the books, which are image-based, focusing on the Solar System and stars; and the exhibitions featuring limited-edition prints of planetary landscapes and galactic vistas.
