Commissioned by The Popular Workshop this short documentary examines the work of Hunter Longe. Inspired by the visual by-products of magnetic data erasure – or degaussing, Longe investigates the idea of destruction as a medium for creation. Obscuration, negation, distortion and dematerialization become the formal and conceptual residue of this meta-magnetic, process-revealing installation that includes large scale wall drawings, sculptural studies, and experimental video situations.
