2001 Colours Andy Never Thought Of

George Barber, b. Guyana, English, 2015, 5:43 minutes

2001 Colours Andy Never Thought Of transforms Warhol’s infamous screen prints of Marilyn Monroe through a process of color manipulation. The viewer witnesses a flurry of changing tones, colors, and shades that pulse alongside entrancing music. George Barber was a leading figure in the Scratch Video phenomenon of the 1980s, which exploited newly available video-editing technologies and their potential for rhythmic-editing and moving-image collage.
