He soon earned a reputation for making art from preexisting materials, most spectacularly classic films.

Gordons blatant creative Kidnapping of movies is best shown in 24 Hour Psycho (1993), in which the effect of stretching the iconic Hitchcock thriller into a daylong and silent screening challenges our understanding of the original version and the psychic themes it probes.

Interviews with the artist provide insight into the physical impact and rigor of his video, photographic, audio, and text-based works over the past decade, and six key works are examined in depth.
