This short film is a fascinating look at the way Brooklyn-based photo artist Daniel Gordon creates the elaborate, colorful, three-dimensional tableaux he constructs with images collected from the Internet. The video focuses on still lifes, created with analog techniques then finished digitally. A joy to watch, especially if you’re interested in process.
The video was recently screened as part of a Hort, New York, event (see details on this page, which also has background information on Daniel Gordon). It was produced by Art21 as part of a New York Close Up devoted to artists in the first decade of their professional career, living and working in New York City.
