Giant Steps Backwards

American artist Nicol Eltzroth Rosendorf (°1971, Atlanta, United States) creates work in moving images, sound/music and objects. His work addresses time, language, scale and systems.

Nicol's work Giant Steps Backwards was begun in November 2016 as an elegy for the last century and as a keeling canary call of collapse. It is a black and white 3D animation of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's iconic Farnsworth house, built 1951. The interior volume of the rational and ordered space is progressively filled and subsequently destabilized by a torrent of (also rational) dodecahedrons. While this is occurring a wall progressively and senselessly bifurcates the space.

Nicol's original music accompanying the animation utilizes a slowed and reversed reinterpretation of the harmonic structure of John Coltrane’s iconic composition Giant Steps, released 1960.
