Alfred Hitchock seems to hold a certain particular appeal for artists. From Douglas Gordon's "24 Hour Psycho," which sees the director's masterpiece slowed down to a one-day timespan, to a current exhibition themed around the filmmaker at Gallery 1988 in Santa Monica, visual and video artists seem to love deconstructing and recreating the iconography of the great director's films.

Rear Window
Alfred Hitchock seems to hold a particular appeal for artists. From Douglas Gordon's "24 Hour Psycho," which sees the director's masterpiece slowed down to a one-day timespan, to a current exhibition themed around the filmmaker at Gallery 1988 in Santa Monica, visual and video artists seem to love deconstructing and recreating the iconography of the great director's films.

One more attempt has arrived online (via @UltraCulture), and it's a phenomenal reworking of one of the director's very best films, "Rear Window." Installation artist Jeff Desom has used Adobe After Effects to extract all the footage from the Jimmy Stewart/Grace Kelly thriller, rearranged it into a single tableau, and then plays it out in timelapse. It's extremely clever, and a fascinating new angle on a true cinema classic. Watch below, and find out more at Desow's site.
