Michael bell-smith

New York, NY

Michael Bell-Smith takes familiar visual elements – from games, advertising, interiors, and corporate design, among other places – and positions them within unexpected conceptual frameworks. His digital animations and appropriations wryly reflect upon our cultural moment: as he tracks the circulation and proliferation of images and sounds, he charts a rapidly changing history of viral content. He mixes flatness with deep perspectives, and motion and stillness, in dynamic meditations on the image’s hold on truth.
