112 SECOND THE BIRDS

Synopsis

 

John Abrams has been painting scenes from movies for more than a decade. Currently he focuses on the films of Alfred Hitchcock.

 

In 112 SECOND THE BIRDS, Abrams borrows segments from the director’s 1963 film, The Birds, to make paintings, which he then reinserts into the original source using Final Cut Pro software thereby creating a hybrid comprising storytelling, painting, film-making, video and new media programs.

 

112 SECOND THE BIRDS, is part of a trilogy in which the artist’s produces video works that explore different approaches to the reworking of Hitchcock’s narratives, to present perspectives based on his stories and the narrative within the artist’s own creative explorations.
