Daniel Barrow

Barrow works in projection performance, installation, video, sculpture, printmaking and drawing to present cinematic narratives. Since 1993, he has adapted comic book narratives to “manual” forms of animation by projecting and manipulating drawings on overhead projectors. Barrow’s performances and installations aim to collide imagery from the cultural and digital past with emotional, usually melancholic, content; in doing so, he returns to a former or nostalgic experience of stimulus. All of his work expands upon dualistic, universal themes: good vs. evil, shame vs. pride, experience vs. innocence, and awareness of the present moment vs. an increasingly bleak, and rapidly advancing future.
