Ran Slavin is an artist who works primarily with video installation, sound and film. His work often embraces the tension between fact and fiction, supernatural and mythical, history and futurism. It does so through fiction, narrative, post production and elaborate installations.
His films, sound work and video installations can be interpreted as expansions of cinematic forms, usually utilizing post production and compositing sensibilities as tools of subversion and reality enhancement that compel the viewer to wander beyond the immediate image.
