Strands of Consciousness: A Portrait of Montana Artist Mark Strand


Audience Awards

This video competed in
Art Montana Video Contest

Director(s): Colin Ruggiero and Owen Bissell

This film sets the process of carving a buffalo against the backdrop of an original poem about Montana, revealing nomadic artist Mark Strand’s efforts to integrate his life, philosophy and art. The filmmakers hope that this film, shot on a standard definition camcorder more than a decade ago, demonstrates that sometimes a unique and compelling character trumps technical details. Mark Strand continues to travel the seldom frequented corners of Montana making his art and he deserves to be celebrated.
