I’ve been especially inspired by films like Blade Runner (1982) and Alien (1979) which utilize earlier, more hand-made special effects—practical scale models, miniatures, and blue screens. This method of working is grounded in the fabrication of physical objects and has a tangible connection to sculpture—but is also free of the many associations that contemporary tools of digital image manipulation are burdened with, especially their relationship to post-truth technologies and disinformation. — Josh Kline*
