Brent Green Interview
May 17, 2010; 4:01 Minutes; Video
Sculptor and filmmaker Brent Green is perhaps one of the ultimate DIY practitioners. Green produces his own stop-motion animated movies; sculpts, draws, and paints the characters and backdrops; and often provides live narration and musical scores to accompany screenings. For his first feature-length film and his first film with live actors, Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then, the artist built an entire house based on the home of a Louisville hardware clerk by the name of Leonard Wood. In this video Green talks about Gravity and describes the process of building the monolithic wax cylinder recorder that is the centerpiece of his MATRIX installation, Brent Green: Perpetual and furious refrain.
