Douglas Gordon - ReEdit

Douglas Gordon



Douglas Gordon is the artist whom I researched in the Human Being project. This work is titled 24 Hour Psycho and an art installation created in 1993.

The work consists entirely of an appropriation of Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 Psycho slowed down to approximately two frames a second, rather than the usual 24. As a result it lasts for exactly 24 hours, rather than the original 109 minutes.(Lee, Nathan. "THE WEEK AHEAD: June 11 - June 17; FILM". The New York Times. 16 November 2009.)

The film was an important work in Gordon's early career, and is said to introduce themes common to his work, such as "recognition and repetition, time and memory, complicity and duplicity, authorship and authenticity, darkness and light." ("Douglas Gordon: what have i done". The Guardian. 16 November 2009.)
