Video: Green on Gravity

Sculptor and filmmaker Brent Green is perhaps one of the ultimate DIY practitioners. Green produces his own stop-motion animated movies; sculpts, draws, and paints the characters and backdrops; and often provides live narration and musical scores to accompany screenings. For his first feature-length film and his first film with live actors, Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then, the artist built an entire house based on the home of an eccentric Louisville hardware clerk by the name of Leonard Wood. In this video Green talks about Gravity, which has its West Coast premiere at PFA Theater on Wednesday, June 16, and describes the process of building the monolithic wax cylinder recorder that is the centerpiece of his MATRIX installation, Brent Green: Perpetual and furious refrain, on view now through September 12.
