Four years ago, I shot 3 videos. My thinking was that they might be an interesting marketing tool, and having just done some work at Harpo, I thought it’d be fun to use as a pitch to them. Since then, collectively, they’ve been viewed more than 58,000 times. Crazy right?
Anyway, as I am getting ever so close to relaunching the new site, I thought it might be fun to show off one of these little videos.

I have no idea why I was struck with nostalgia and inspired to look up Robert Longo, but I’m glad I did. When I was getting my MFA, he was my idol. I loved the way he, much like Caravaggio before him, thought of the viewer as a participant in the art. His large drawings of people falling make you feel like you need to get out of the way and some of his later work involved both 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional elements, suggesting that the viewer occupies space in the art.
His simple black and white drawings use scale as a brilliant tool in affecting the viewer.
