1. A project from bureauofcommongoods.com, Made by Hand is a new short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand—sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.

    Our fifth film turns to bike maker Ezra Caldwell (Fast Boy Cycles), who was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. When the cancer threatens to shatter his love of bikes, Ezra survives by documenting his illness as thoroughly as his craft.

  2. Caught up with an old friend in New Zealand who's craft is traditional pinstriping. He was kind enough to let me film the art form and compile this into a mini interview/promo.

  3. I put together a little video together for my father-in-law working in his art studio. It's just a little glimpse at some of the stages that go on in making a piece of art.

  4. Video by BAL Productions for Berlin Art Link Magazine

    Sara Rahbar, a mixed media artist based in New York, hails originally from Tehran, Iran. In 1981, a 5-year-old Rahbar fled with her family for over seven days from Tehran to Turkey to Dubai and then finally to New York during the aftermath of the Islamic Revolution and in the beginning of the Iran-Iraq war. Her personal experience in and between these two often conflicting countries is reflected through her unique perspective on religion, nationalism, politics, and war.

    Through installations, photographs and sculptures, each assigned a movingly poetic title, she outwardly communicates her ongoing internal dialogue about the world around her. She travels back-and-forth between Tehran and New York, as well as through cities in between, obsessively collecting a multitude of textiles and found objects, including such aggressive and powerfully symbolic objects as gas masks, prosthetic limbs, weapons, flags, and forceps. She then mixes and arranges these items together to create a new beautifully calm context that surprisingly evokes more ideas of peace than war.

    Her work has been widely shown internationally, including Cairo, Mumbai, Dubai, Madrid, Vienna, Moscow, New York, London, and Paris. It is also held in multiple collections worldwide, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Saatchi Collection in London, The Burger Collection in Hong Kong and the Devi Art Foundation in Gurgaon, India.
