Thomas Demand: Animations

Edited by Carrie Schmitz. Introduction by Jeff Fleming. Text by Michael Fried, Bruce Sterling.

Thomas Demand: AnimationsAnimations accompanies the first museum exhibition to focus on the films and videos of the acclaimed contemporary German artist and photographer Thomas Demand (born 1964). Demand is best known for his large-scale color photographs of objects or sites taken from images in the popular media, which he painstakingly reconstructs in paper. With these new films and videos, Demand has taken this practice to the next stage, extending his investigations in to real time and space by animating his paper constructions. The primary focus of the volume is the two-minute tour de force video entitled “Pacific Sun,” which takes place in a cruise ship bar during a violent storm at sea. This volume--the first to survey Demand’s films and videos--brings these latest works back full circle, but as video stills. Also included is a major essay on the artist by the acclaimed photo critic Michael Fried.

Featured image, from the 2012 video, "Pacific Sun," is reproduced from Thomas Demand: Animations.

FROM THE BOOK
"Pacific Sun is the most ambitious Demand effort to date. It's typical of his oeuvre, being made of everyday cardboard and paper. Yet it's so seamless, complex, and meticulous that it resembles virtual reality. It's a tour de force of volumetric, architectural paper sculpture. It's unheimlich in its superhuman attention to detail." -Bruce Sterling
