MOMENTS | Collage: Hannah Perry: Always, a Deconstructed Film that Combines Perry’s User-Generated Footage with Archival Clips

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

British artist Hannah Perry’s work often combines several elements in a way that very characteristic of the Internet age. She creates deconstructed short films by weaving together clips she shoots with an iPhone with found footage of “old, strange documentaries in video libraries, or from biopics about comedians.” By using an iPhone to record, her work takes on a very user-generated approach while capturing the zeitgeist of this generation; our iPhones allow us to instantly digitized life’s moments. Perry just debuted her first major solo show, Hannah Perry: Always, at Steve Turner in Los Angeles, which is on view from Feb. 14–Mar. 14, 2015.
