Fifty 1/1 GIF animations created by Nicolas Sassoon over the course of seven years of work
Nicolas Sassoon’s practice has long been concerned with the tensions between pixel and screen, reflecting on their entanglement and materiality by integrating pixelated figures, moiré patterns, and early computer graphics into experiential displays. This focus on early computer graphics is driven by the sculptural, material, and pictorial qualities of this imagery and its limitations and poetics. His work explores the projective dimensions of screen-based space and the many relationships between computer technology and the natural world. His research leads him to engage in cross-disciplinary projects across architecture, electronic music, textiles, and art.
His artworks have been exhibited at The Whitney Museum of American Art (US) Eyebeam (US), Current Museum (US), Vancouver Art Gallery (CA), Plugin ICA (CA), Contemporary Art Gallery (CA), Charles H.Scott Gallery (CA), Western Front (CA), PRETEEN Gallery (MX), Victoria & Albert Museum (UK), the Centre Pompidou (FR), House of Electronic Basel (SW), Arti et Amicitiae (NL), MU Eindhoven (NL), Today Art Museum (CN), Chronus Art Center (CN), the Berlin Fashion Week (DE) and the New-York Fashion Week (US). Nicolas lives and works between Canada and France. Wil Aballe Art Projects represents him out of Vancouver BC, Canada.
