Introducing Jason Goldwatch’s “Time Pieces”
Featuring cultural icons shot on super 8 film.
Our resident director and photographer, Jason Goldwatch, will unveil his latest works of visual art called “Time Pieces” exclusively on Mass Appeal next week and thereafter. So, what exactly is a “Time Piece?”
A black and white, Super 8 mm, short film series by Jason Goldwatch focusing on his personal heroes and cultural icons. Textured, intimate, and shot silent, Goldwatch shoots and also edits the film himself by hand, setting the images to ironic sound beds.
“Time Pieces” sheds light on the subjects as human beings showing them engaging in activities the general public rarely sees them engaged in. Be it Too-$hort at a Youth Center in Oakland, Jay Electronica’s first trip to Nepal, or Ricky Powell in New York feeding squirrels–the subject matter and location are as much a character in the pieces as the subjects themselves.
The first installment of “Time Pieces” premieres next week and takes us to Brazil with Pharrell and super model Karolina Kurkova so check out some stills from the piece below and stay tuned for the film.
