Art and Crimefighting


Above: blurry still from painter David Reed's video piece where he digitally inserted an abstract painting of his into the background of the '80s TV show Crime Story (mentioned in the previous post). Detectives walk around the room and the painting sort of quivers on the office wall behind them. The composite isn't exactly seamless--this was made in 2001 so the technology was still a little shaky. As I recall, the actual, physical painting was hanging nearby on the wall at Max Protetch. The low tech crappiness of the video is part of the charm: this is probably my favorite work of art by Reed.
