Nicolas Sassoon’s work has long been concerned with the tensions between the pixel and the screen, reflecting on their entanglement and materiality by constraining himself to experiment with pixelated patterns and figures as its sole visual language. This focus on early computer graphics is driven by the sculptural, material and pictorial qualities of this imagery, as well as its limitations and its poetics.
Sassoon’s work often explores the projective dimensions of screen-based space, and how the digital image can express dimensions of the physical realm.
While most of his output is published online, Sassoon also materializes his web-based practice into a wide range of Medias. His research often leads him to engage in cross-disciplinary projects in the fields of architecture, electronic music, textiles, and art.
