Moore works as a videographer and collaboration artist. He’s traveled to Costa Rica, Ecuador and other countries; set up blank canvases in public spaces; and invited passersby to create paintings representative of their cultures — all while he filmed the process.
Moore also traveled to Nepal to document the long-term effects of earthquakes there. The production, titled “Nepal Will Rise” has reached international audiences.
