Introducing Jeff Frost!
Jeff Frost is an experimental art videographer from Los Angeles.
My name is Jeff Frost, and I make experimental art films. To do this I scour the deserts of the western US looking for abandoned structures. When I find one that I like I set up camp there and paint large scale optical illusions on the inside walls. Then I make films out of the thousands of photos and the occasional DSLR video clip. My previous film, Flawed Symmetry of Prediction was featured on The Atlantic, Brooklyn Streetart, Discover and many more.
The concept for my new film really started coming together last summer when riots broke out in my neighborhood. I climbed onto my landlord’s roof and started time lapsing the unfolding events. If the police did something else I wanted evidence. The riots began because Anaheim PD shot an unarmed man in the middle of the day. When the smoke cleared I sent the footage to several news agencies, but no one knew what to do with it so I decided to create art out of news. But the project has become much bigger than I ever could have predicted, topping 150,000 images over the course of the last year. In order to keep the momentum going I released the first half of the project, Modern Ruin: Black Hole piggybacked with a Kickstarter [FUNDED] to raise funds for the rest.
