More work in progress. Stills from the video project Left Behind. This project is the third iteration of a video project first started over 15 years ago. Its second life was as part of a collaborative Jazz performance at MICA in Baltimore. Im now working with this source material again. Not sure yet where its going but here are some of the stills from the project in progress.
Art, seeing and making, is very much like a spiritual journey for me; with many of the same physical, mental, emotional, advantages others claim through religion. I appreciate that VVG didn’t say it was “like” faith, but instead said it “is a faith.” And to articulate what seems to me to be a fundamental corollary of any true faith, he added “it poses the duty to disregard pubic opinion.” Or really the opinion of others in general.
A good bit of perspective, I would say.
I visited the Vincent Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam this week. Lots of moving images and ideas emerged.
