Subject 3: Andy Warhol films

I’ve always loved the experimental film work of Andy Warhol to the point where I had somewhat of an Edie Sedgwick phase during my school years. Warhol’s film ‘Poor Little Rich Girl’ has had an influence on a significant portion of my video work over the years. The passivity and voyeuristic insight are reoccurring themes within Warhol’s work. Warhol’s avant-garde experimental films capture the characters of the period, however in an out of focus way, which makes the viewer focus more.

 

One of the most well-known examples of this voyeurism within Warhol’s work is ‘Sleep’.
