“Light” a short film directed by David Parker, initially began as a project intended to bring awareness to energy waste.  Bleeding, crying lights were meant to metaphorically parallel the way in which we invisibly squander our natural resources without much thought. While the original sentiment remains, the film also grew into a poetic statement about a world run amok and the human tendency to exploit that which we hold dear.


The film was shot over a couple nights in Los Angeles as two friends drove around with a camera exploring the city’s architecture and abandoned landscapes. Keeping in this vein, the film will be projected in selected US cities in vacant storefront windows and onto walls in alleys as a moving piece of public art.

“Rest,” is the story of a young American soldier who dies in WW1 and ninety years later unearths himself from a grave in the European countryside. Shot over the course of a week in Mendocino County, Morongo Valley and New York City, the film is a dark, but beautiful meditation on a wayward soul’s pursuit of peace.


Wise Blood “B.I.G. E.G.O.”

A death-dealing woman destroys everyone with her gravitational pull.  She climbs to her perch atop a New York City loft and waits with her servant for the sun to set and the humans to gravitate toward her.

The Popular Workshop Artist Series: Bob Chisholm

The second in a series of documentaries being commissioned for The Popular Workshop, the short film delves into the life of photographer Bob Chisholm. Chisholm has been prolifically documenting his travels, family and surroundings for roughly the last 50 years. The majority of the work in his most recent show was discovered in a crawl space in a home in Northern California, left untouched for more than a decade. Architect, poet, avid traveler and documentarian, his work both subtly subverts and simultaneously embraces the sociological constructs of the eras that it spans. The duplicity, off-putting humor, and beauty in the mundane that runs throughout Chisholm’s work brings to mind the work of photographers such as William Eggelston, Robert Frank and Joseph Szabo. Originally unintended for a gallery audience, Chisholm’s photographs present a candidly honest depiction of an uncompromising life.

The Popular Workshop Artist Series: Hunter Longe

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.
