What is Essays?

Essays is a film series that explores the possibilities of an art analysis that goes beyond its traditional form, namely, the written word. It aims to establish a visual style, and a structural scheme, all while exploring different mediums. Each film focuses on an art piece: “Object to be Destroyed” by Man Ray, “Electric Chair” by Andy Warhol, and lastly, “Untitled Anthropometric” by Yves Klein.

“Electric Chair” is one print of the many prints that Warhol screen-printed with various bright colors. He wanted to illustrate the lack of effect an image has when seen multiple times. Here he shows us an empty electric chair in a chamber, a sad metaphor for death.
