About the Artist

Eric Ostrowski (Seattle) received a 2007 GAP to transfer 30 minutes of his short experimental 16mm films to video and then replicate 500 DVD copies (with handmade four-color silkscreen covers) for worldwide availability through independent video and music distributors. Included will be Skull and Blackberries, which was created by laying blackberries on raw film stock and then exposing it to the sun for two to three days. Similarly, The Hummingbird features “direct sound,” which uses marks in the optical soundtrack area of 16mm film to create sounds and rhythms.
