Benjamin Forster (b.1985) does not have any pets. He was a professional artist for many years. Now he is somewhat unconcerned with professionalilty except as a concept. He has a number of formal papers, like an honours degree in Visual Arts from the Australian National University, a graduate diploma in Library Science from Curtin University, and a soon to expire learners drivers license from the NSW Roads and Maritime Services. In 2016 he co-founded Frontyard Projects in Marrickville, where he helps hold public space open and continues to care for the decommissioned Australia Council for the Art’s research library.
