Howard Hughes Inc. is a single-channel video by Eric Metcalfe that highlights the titular American aviator and film producer. The video pairs a slideshow of photographs with narration by Bayard Palmer that reflects on Hughes life and work—from feats in aerospace engineering, cinema, and brassiere design. 

The work was presented as part of Metcalfe’s solo exhibition Howard Huge at Western Front. 

Video documentation is available upon request.
