KICKSTART THIS: Modern Ruin by Jeff Frost

Jeff Frost scours the planet looking for abandoned structures and paints large-scale optical illusions on the on the crumbling interior walls. He captures his art with stop motion and time-lapse photography.

In 2012 he released an art film and book constructed from 40,000 photographs called Flawed Symmetry of Prediction.

Now he is working on a follow up film titled, Modern Ruin and has taken to Kickstarter to fund the project. And in an interesting twist, he’s releasing the first half of his film, “Modern Ruin: Black Hole” in conjunction with this Kickstarter campaign. To date, nearly 150,000 photographs have been shot for this film with far more required to bring it to completion. Your support will accelerate and elevate the second half of this project.

“Modern Ruin is a contemplation of the idea that creation and destruction is the same thing. The white hole from which our universe sprang, and the blackness into which it may disappear testify to as much, yet these bookends of existence are inadequate to address everything in between. For a better sense of what it is to exist we must speak to atoms, trees, whole collections of worlds, and of course, womankind.”
