Nicolas Sassoon uses early computer imaging techniques to render a wide array of forms and figures, encoded visually with pixelated patterns and animation.
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 contemplative and projective dimensions of screen-based images, and how these images can express dimensions of the physical realm. While most of his output is published online, Sassoon also materializes his work into a wide range of medias. His visual research often leads him to engage in cross-disciplinary projects in the fields of architecture, electronic music, textiles, and art.
