Influenced by philosophy and science, American-born artist and filmmaker Reynold Reynolds works primarily with 16mm and Super 8mm film as an art medium. He has developed a common film grammar based on transformation, consumption and decay. Reynolds' depictions frequent disturbed psychological and physical themes, increasingly provoking the viewer's participation and dismay. He was awarded the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in 2003 and in 2004 he was invited to The American Academy in Berlin. He has received numerous awards, including the Distinction Award at transmediale.09.
