Gary Baseman’s Video Installation for “The Blackout” in Bryant Park

While drawing is always at the core of his work, Gary Baseman (featured in our current issue, Hi-Fructose Vol. 30) is constantly finding new ways to take this two-dimensional art form beyond the page. The artist recently created a short film that will be on view as part of "The Blackout" video installation in New York's Bryant Park. On view today, tomorrow and Saturday, February 1 from 2:00 to 6:30 pm, the installation features five videos (each created by a different artist) conceived as voyeuristic views into the apartments of five New Yorkers.

Baseman was given the theme of the teenage girl (the other subjects include the fashion designer, the businessman, the artist and the super). His video starts out as a look into the girl’s bedroom and quickly turns into a dream sequence where the Wild Girls, characters who frequently appear in Baseman mythology, come out to play. Take a look at some screen shots from the video below and check out “The Blackout” this week if you’re in New York.
