Derek Taylor

[filmmaker]

Derek Taylor's moving image work is an amalgamation of documentary and experimental forms, consisting of films about landscape, history, travel, time, space and the nuances of perception. The overriding theme of "space" manifests itself in several contexts in his work: physical, geographical and transformative. He maintains a very defined interest in the hybridization of both of these forms (experimental and documentary) and a clear focus on the investigation of both the ephemeral and the permanent in the human experience. His work has been screened at a number of festivals both nationally and internationally. He studied film, video and new media at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and currently lives and works in Connecticut.
