“Time turns into space in Sabrina Gschwandtner’sFilm Quilts,” writes critic Leah Ollman in photograph’s May-June issue. In her labor-intensive pieces, Gschwandtner cuts lengths of 16mm footage and sews them, mostly by machine, into traditional patterns and asymmetrical, crazy-quilt designs, which invoke, at once, modernist abstraction, stop-motion photography, stained glass, domestic textiles, and folk art.
