Last Days in a Lovely Place

Summer 2018 at Lubov

Last Days in a Lovely Place provides a conceptual and formal break from Theodore Darst’s previous video projects. Darst abandons the highly rendered and processed landscape of professional video editing software in favor of less robust, casual mark making tools, and traditional photographic processes–counterpointing this shift is his attention to the detailed and labor intensive processes of working and reworking each image and frame – Nathaniel Hitchcock
