halfsize movie frame (2007)

Half Size Movie Frame, takes as its source the huge volume of video images that now crowd the web. This relatively recent development in interet history made possible by greater bandwidths and improved codecs has shifted the way users consume and interact with digital media. Humans voyeuristic facination with mishaps, accidents and disaster now has an unending supply of barbaric video content to gorge upon, without need to consider the consequences that result from the incident. However the format of painting,is an archaic medium halts the cascade. It forces the viewer to reconsider what we absorb daily through the web.

Full Description

The web is my primary source for images and i try to use images that are ambiguous and without a clear origin. when i re-place these images into paint i want to see if the meaning are shifted.
