Scott Fife and The Making of Lionel Hampton

Scott Fife, whose work is featured in our Summer 2009 issue, is a Seattle-based artist who sculpts astonishingly life-like portraits of famous figures out of archival cardboard, glue, and screws. This one-minute time-lapse video, The Making of Lionel Hampton, was created by photographer Mark Davison to document Fife’s process from start to finish. Lionel Hampton is Fife’s tribute to the legendary African-American jazz percussionist, bandleader, and pioneer in the racial integration of jazz. It is one of several pieces in a series of iconic musicians Fife began in 2004 that includes Janis Joplin, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, and Kurt Cobain.
