Los Angeles based artist Eric Saks joined Central School Project in residence for four days in 2016. Eric presented a screening of three films and a video workshop that was open to all.
Eric is drawn to the function/disfunction of technology in our lives. Eric is a keen and deep thinker about American life. He finds, creates and presents orphan stories. He can be cryptic or solemn and incredibly
funny. Bereft subjects or "characters" are coupled with concise observation. Cardboard, paper, tape, found footage, string, cartoon
characters, pixilvision, tv ads, answering machine tapes, even motes of dust are in his reportoire. He has an eye and ear for neglected beauty.
His work has earned him a Guggenheim Fellowship and grants from the Annenberg Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
