Brian Alfred is renowned for his collages, paintings and digital animations that are fluid constructs between classic and contemporary media. In his latest work for Sedition, Circuit (2014), Alfred follows the course of a single circuit of a Formula 1 racetrack. The work is made from over 3,000 individual drawings which were compiled from rotoscoping - an animation method that involves drawing over the live footage of a real event. Alfred eliminated the frame of the vehicle’s dashboard and isolated the outlines of the landscape passing in front of it, allowing viewers a unique perspective on this landscape and the speed at which it passes.

Circuit underlines a key theme of Alfred’s practice where works frequently examine individuals’ perceptions of their surrounding world, and how contemporary media and its influence on culture and aesthetics influence their interactions.

Brian Alfred lives and works in New York.
