New Artist Member: Barron Sherer

Posted July 13th, 2021 in Announcements, New Acquisitions, New Films, News / Events

Canyon Cinema is pleased to welcome Miami-based media artist Barron Sherer to the collection!

Taking the form of hybrid film/video remediations and projection-based media installations, Sherer’s work focuses on repurposing and manipulating found film, slides, video, and photographs through formal experimentation; utilizing social media platforms such as Instagram as both a source of material and a mode of documentation. 

Barron’s Mobile Phone Studies #1-25 is now available for rent from Canyon Cinema.

Mobile Phone Studies #1-25 (2020, 5 minutes, color, sound, 16mm)

25! micro studies (Instagram videos) created from the artist’s camera roll and music library. Stylized recapitulations documenting studio work with film prints, memes, gifs, photos of family life. Diaristic and each created in a fury.
