Days of Future Past
Artist: Joe Hambleton
Days of Future Past is an experimental video that utilizes William S. Borroughs’ cut-up technique in an attempt to alter the process of filmmaking. Multiple scenes were shot across Ontario and Detroit and then randomly selected and organized, creating the structure and tone of the narrative in the process. Objects were then imposed onto the original footage and used as a reference point for each scene.
Joe Hambleton is an artist who lives and works in Toronto. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Windsor and a Master of Fine Arts from York University. He creates video installations to explore how the medium can be used as a narrative device for the autobiography. His work has been shown in North America, Europe and Asia and is represented by Pari Nadimi Gallery in Toronto.
