A Loft

Directed by Ken Jacobs
United States, 2010
Short, Avant-Garde


A 3-D glimpse of a downtown Manhattan artist’s loft about to give birth to new artist’s lofts, which is odd, seeing that dentists and the minor hirelings of high finance are likely to be the new renters and buyers. Also odd is the absence of any 3-D technology.

A Loft Directed by Ken Jacobs

Critics reviews

Jacobs makes parts of the image jut out, and he rotates and otherwise manipulates the image. But we get the sense of viewing a piston-powered metaphor for the relationship between the artist and his viewers. The title, A Loft, is clearly a pun. Jacobs invites us all into his visual universe, in the hopes that we might soar. But we are promised that we will at least get off the ground.
