The idea of creating fire images for the Zapruder film evolved from my Impugn series. I have always been fascinated with the JFK assassination ever since I had a history class in the 10th grade with a complete conspiracy buff for a teacher.
Here, I chose 6 frames from the film. But the assignment I am giving myself is to create a painting for every frame (486 in total) of the film. In turn, I will also make these paintings into an animation, something that I feel extremely excited about.
