Another Light: Thomas Demand’s “Pacific Sun”

Michael Fried, J. R. Herbert Boone Chair in the Humanities and professor of the history of art, John Hopkins University. To celebrate the publication of his latest book, Another Light: Jacques-Louis David to Thomas Demand, Michael Fried presented a film screening and lecture at the National Gallery of Art on February 22, 2015. After showing Thomas Demand’s brilliant stop-motion film Pacific Sun (2012), Fried presents his analysis of the film—both in its own right and in relation to Demand’s much-admired photographic work.
