Staring Down Andy

In the 60’s, Andy Warhol captured on film nearly 500 live portraits of some of the brightest stars passing through The Factory, his 47th St. atelier.

The subjects of Warhol’s screen tests would speak, wink, lick their lips, brush their teeth, cry, and present other various idiosyncracies.

Half a century later, eons in technology, local artist Bryn Corbett is paring down the format. By capturing video in high speed HD 1080p, even a still subject staring calmly into the camera will reveal themselves, their strengths and vulnerabilities.
