Fog and Smog is a creative collective of culture vultures from the SF Bay Area and Los Angeles. Some work as composers, some as film editors, producers, designers, deejays, animators, photographers, etc. Their first project, “Whole Foods Parking Lot” was written produced and performed by DJDave aka David Wittman, and directed by George Woolley with Pedram Torbati. Jake Pushinsky cut it, and both Ben Kahle and Ben Marlbrough appear in supporting roles.
Employing paint and motion he creates paintings and kinetic sculptures that defy cynicism in an increasingly fabricated culture. Alternating between surrealist and realist techniques, involving motion and electronics in paintings and sculptures, he is creating pieces of an alternate reality.
