Single Still
Combining photography and filmography, I'm trying to derive the essence of films from a single still. All content original, citation appreciated.
Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: ‘It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to.’

  • Beautiful Losers
Beautiful Losers surveys the 90’s D.I.Y. art scene in a surprisingly comprehensive way, tracing it back to origins. It never ceases to be engaging, although it maybe a little too serious. You’ll be surprised how many things you recognize came from this small collective.

  • Pollock
This biographical film about the artist Jackson Pollock lends insight into the life of the mysterious artist, and benefits from excellent performances from Ed Harris (as Pollock) and Marcia Gay Harden (as Pollock’s wife Lee Krasner).

  • The Radiant Child
While being an excellant survey of the life of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, this documentary also does a great job of exposing his lust for life. In a world haunted by a common perception of snobbishness, The Radiant Child reveals an approachable and lovable character; making his ultimate demise all the more tragic.

  • Herb and Dorothy
In this heartfelt documentary about esteemed art collectors Herb and Dorothy Vogel, one is shocked by the extent which these two have surrounded themselves with art. They are at times in the film surrounded by more art than in the still here, but they are collectors of minimalism after all.

  • Exit Through the Gift Shop
No matter what this film’s director, Banksy, says about what it is or isn’t about, there’s no denying its mostly him. Although Exit does serve as an interesting survey of street art, its greater strength is drawing us into the mind of Banksy. While watching Thierry Guetta’s growing obsession with street art and the pranks of Banksy, you have to wonder if Banksy is pulling a prank on you,
