Douglas Gordon (born 20 September, 1966) is a Scottish artist. Much of his work is about memory and uses repetition in various forms. He uses material from the public realm and also creates performance-based videos. One of his best-known art works is “24 Hour Psycho” (1993) which slows down Alfred Hitchcock's film Psycho so that it lasts twenty four hours. In Through a looking glass” (1999), Gordon created a double-projection work around the climactic scene in Martin Scorsese’s “Taxi Driver”, in which the main character addresses the camera; the screens are arranged so that the character seems to be addressing himself. Gordon has also made “Blind Stars” in 2002, a series of photographs, featuring mid-century movie stars in which their eyes were replaced by expressionless black, white or mirrored surfaces.
