Director Biography – Ben Moscona, Jason Edelstein

Jason Edelstein is a visual, aural, and literary artist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, currently residing in Denver, Colorado.

Director Statement


Jack Loeffler defines a biophany as a, “symphony of living organisms that are germane to a particular ecosystem.” As humans, we often separate ourselves from these habitats and obfuscate these symphonies with our cacophonous blabber. Jack explains that we can join the orchestra, all we have to do is listen.
