GPS Film is one of his series of artworks that are ‘cinema generating systems’—experimental types of film players.
“As a kid in the 1960’s, I was the first player generation—I had eight-tracks, cassettes, reel-to-reels, walkmans, and of course television. I’m interested in how a machine that changes the recording, assembling, presenting, or context of film can radically change the experience and the ways that stories are told.
The GPS Film artwork puts a new tool out there to let film be put together in a way that’s unique to a mobile culture.”
