Daniel Barrow

Since 1993, Daniel Barrow has used an overhead projector to create and adapt comic book narratives to a "manual" form of animation by projecting, layering and manipulating drawings on mylar transparencies. Barrow variously refers to this practice as graphic performance, live illustration, or manual animation. He has used this technique to create performances, videos and installations that have been exhibited widely in venues including The Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), New Langton Arts (San Francisco), and The Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver).
