Primaries (2017) – Background

Donald Trump was the event of the season during those many and long primary months. The news channels and the public couldn’t take their eyes off of him. I’ve boiled it all down to its essence.

Primaries is made up of eleven videos based on a photo from each of the GOP primary debates. I processed the photo into color “slices” which I then rotated as various speeds and directions. It sounds simple but the result is anything but. The visage of Trump takes on a sinister, God-Like, animus toward the viewer. The weird, swirling interference patterns, the ghostly face of Trump suddenly emerging from the glowing kaleidoscope only to swirl away again.
