Chop Chop

September 30, 2010

Alumnus Peter Buchanan-Smith (MFA 2000 Design) earned a lot of attention earlier this year for his line of designer axes. Building on the success of the project, Buchanan-Smith is now producing a series of five short films showing the axes in action. The Chop series is a collaboration between the designer, photographer Finn O’Hara and composer Nico Muhly, slowing down the action of the ax to reveal the inherent drama of steel splitting wood.
