Video Vignettes Inspired by David Hockney’s Photocollages

Filmmaker Ian Gamester created this video of moments collected over the course of several years, inspired by artist David Hockney’s photocollages, his famous “joiners.”

Gamester writes:

I was always greatly impressed with David Hockney’s joiners. They seemed to capture so much more of the “moment” than conventional photography.
I started playing around with video joiners in 2007, about the same time Photoshop allowed you to layer video clips. They seemed like nice little snatches of time, so I pretty much continued shooting them throughout most of 2007 and 2008 when the mood struck.

To create the scene, Gamester would shoot in the same manner as a stills photocollage: ten seconds of each portion of the scene.
