Big thanks to my Aunt Mary Lynne for passing along the work of Ori Gersht. Very much in line with the work of Alan Sailer, Gersht has employed the use of high-speed photography and video to capture moments and series of events that are beyond normal human perception.
Gersht takes a more conceptual approach with his work, remixing 17th and 18th century still life paintings and creating a “dichotomy between Violence and Beauty”. Appropriating and imitating famous still-life subject matter, Gersht and his team create dynamic events that they capture with hi-speed video. If you happen to be in the Boston area, his work will be on display until early January (2013).
