James Frost's Landscapes
Frost's videos share many other attributes, and he would probably not himself offer such a narrow analysis of his own work. Indeed, in describing how he plans for a project, he admits, "I'm very lazy! If I over-think something, I can't use it - I have to throw it away." He also has his own way of characterizing his body of work, at least with regard to how he prefers to approach a project: "I tend to look for real situations and twist them in some way." That said, a simple tracing of several of his videos over the last five years helps illustrate dramatic shifts in how we understand ourselves within a world of information. As we grow increasingly accustomed to location-based services available on our computers and mobile devices, the ways that we understand the very idea of landscape changes, and Frost's work nicely captures this idea.
