EDDY’S WORLD is an engaging portrait of a 100-year-old toy inventor. Best known for the iconic Yakity Yak Teeth, Eddy Goldfarb is the inventor of nearly 800 toys including Stompers, Vac-U-Form, Kerplunk and the Bubble Gun.
Eddy began designing toys while serving on the Batfish submarine during World War II. Today, Eddy lives in a retirement community where he converted his garage into a machine shop, creates translucent lithophane portraits on his 3D printer, and writes 100 word short stories.
‘VERTICAL HORIZON’ is situated ‘after the future,’ as Franco Berardi puts it, when utopian visions have come to an end. Fran Athens, a character shifting between masquerade and sci-fi personage, tries to resist this proclamation of finitude, creating the illusion of embodying a character within a ‘real’ science fiction narrative. Despite his efforts, the fiction repeatedly collapses and Fran finds himself trapped in a present journey, which is marked by untoward social encounters.
348 West 22nd Street (2011–15) replicates the artist’s ground-floor residence from a single New York building. Created in luminous swaths of translucent polyester, the dreamlike rooms and hallways are supported by stainless steel. In this immersive passageway of conjoined rooms, visitors pass through an ephemeral representation of the artist’s personal history. The corridor, stairs, apartment, and studio are each rendered in a single block of color.

I've cut indie feature trailers for marketing and documentary sizzle reels for financing. I worked at Trailer Park in Hollywood, CA for a year absorbing what I could about the art of the trailer and bringing it to my private clients.
I am a narrative and documentary editor and filmmaker. I have collaborated with such artists as Andy Hope, Matthew Barney, Paul and Damon McCarthy, James Franco, Simone Forti and Jason Rhoades. Most recently, I was a media producer for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Some of the films I have collaborated on have been exhibited at the 2018 Venice Biennale, Hauser & Wirth Gallery, Los Angeles, Pace Gallery, London and the Guadalajara International Book Fair.
