Dandelions and Dragonflies
David Montgomery creates experimental films based on nature
A Fernandina Beach-based filmmaker and educator, David Montgomery is hoping to drum up support of his One Spark entry, “Propagating.”
“This experience has given me a lot of confidence,” Montgomery admits from his post at the Museum of Contemporary Art’s lobby. “I’ve connected with a few people who have genuine interest in what I’m doing.”
Montgomery’s entry explores the iteration of Internet technology, media landscapes and the filming of patterns occurring in nature. It also expands on a previous work by Montgomery titled “Dandelion Free Culture,” a series of experimental animated loops focused on the structure of the dandelion.
