Jeff Frost is a transmedia artist. His best known work combines installation, optical illusion painting, photography, music and sound design into short films which are created from hundreds of thousands of photographs. Wildfires, riots, the stars and his own optical illusion paintings in abandoned structures are recorded with time lapse and stop motion techniques, and used as building blocks to explore large scale paradoxes, contradictions and the real things we cannot see.
Another work in progress, California on Fire, examines increasing wildfire activity as a result of human actions by drawing the viewer in with aesthetically pleasing night time lapses of large scale destruction. Frost trained as a firefighter and has traveled to roughly 30 fires between 2014-2016 for this project.
