Jeff Frost is a multidisciplinary artist, nomad, and possible alien in a meat suit, who combines painting, photography, music and sound design into short films which are created one frame at a time. He takes hundreds of thousands of high resolution photographs in stop motion and time lapse to record wildfires, riots, the stars and his own paintings in abandoned structures. His work explores large scale contradictions such as the push-pull of societal decay as a negative consequence of technology while simultaneously celebrating said technology.
Frost’s films have been featured at the Palm Springs Museum of Art for the Palm Springs Photo Festival every year since 2012 and in a traveling exhibition in Bangkok for the US Embassy, Nature Nurture 20/20 curated by Hossein Framini. U2 commissioned him to video direct and supply visual content for their Innocence + Experience tour (2015). He has received four Vimeo Staff Pick awards as well as being featured in numerous online publications such as The Atlantic, VICE, and Gizmodo. The American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) named him one of the best photographers of 2014. He has taught workshops and spoken about his work at University of Southern California (USC), Orlando Museum of Art, ASMP, Snap! Orlando Photo Festival, photoLA, Samy’s Camera, The Art Institute, Framingham State University (FSU) and others.
