Tools of the Trade

Tools of the Trade

Tools of the Trade is a audio-visual fantasy about what van Gogh would have found awaiting him in the afterlife, and an exploration of the things we sacrifice for our art.  It is an exploration of artistic branding, the art of telling people who you are, or at least who you want them to believe you are.
