A stroll through Bender's studio can be a
challenging but rewarding experience, weaving through foot-wide walkways
surrounded by piles of present-day artifacts. His space is so crowded,
he does most of his work on a library style table in the hallway outside
of his studio. It is there he creates his unusual brand of artwork, arranging
the ordinary into simple repeating patterns, which force the viewer to
examine the everyday in an uncommon light.
