Omer Fast — Everything That Rises Must Converge

Commonwealth Projects has worked with the artist Omer Fast to research, develop, produce and film a number of video-based art installations — each centered on a theme that makes filming a logistical challenge. Everything That Rises Must Converge is no exception. This video piece documents the life of various adult film actors and actresses, on set and off. These personal, intimate portraits of individuals that humanize an opaque industry are edited together with a fictional narrative to create a subversive but surprisingly subtle work. The installation was premiered at Frieze London 2013 to great critical acclaim.
