Tim Kaulen is a sculptor and street artist who was named Pittsburgh Artist of the year in 2009. The Pittsburgh Center for the Arts asked me to do a short film about Tim’s work so Mark Knobil, Joe and I shot with Tim on and off for six months. Tim was great on film; we made two films instead of one. Together they comprise the DVD we call Tim x 2.

The first film, The Journey is This, documents the transformation of a rusting smokestack into three giant animals. It is great fun to see the giraffe, the horse and the duck cruise straight through downtown Pittsburgh and then settle into their new home at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.

“A little outdoor activity.” That is how Tim describes the enormous sculptures and intriguing painted creatures with which he and his friends have adorned the Pittsburgh area. Outdoor Activity is also the name of our second film about Tim and his work.
