Christo Party

Jason's got his photos of The Gates up, I'm sure the rest of the camera-equipped world will follow.

Albert Maysles talks on WPS1 about the 25+year-long process of making his film about The Gates, The Gates. Maysles is making this film with collaborator Antonio Ferrera for HBO, but he also made other Christo and Jeanne-Claude films over the years. [Actually, a lot of them at the time were just Christo films. I'll let the gender studies art historians figure that one out. Ask Coosje van Bruggen about it, too.]

Maysles has switched to DV lately, and revels in being able to be even less obtrusive and more flexible than 16mm used to let them be.

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
