Paul Garrin Characteristics
Paul Garrin began making video works in 1980 while he was a student at the Cooper Union School of Art in New York. Garrin began working for Nam June Paik on the day that Reagan was shot in March 1981, and spent the day recording TV news broadcasts of the event. A master of image processing techniques, Garrin uses layered digital imagery to achieve dense, atmospheric effects, while addressing issues of public and private space.
