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 3D animation Mass Wasting is a depiction of serial events in a space of indeterminate scale; individually embodied in successive, subjective & acontextual arrangement.
“Duration is the continuous progress of the past which gnaws into the future and which swells as it advances. And as the past grows without ceasing, so also there is no limit to its preservation. Memory, as we have tried to prove, is not a faculty of putting away recollections in a drawer, or of inscribing them in a register. There is no register, no drawer; there is not even, properly speaking, a faculty, for a faculty works intermittently, when it will or when it can, whilst the piling up of the past upon the past goes on without relaxation.”
- Henri Bergson
"It is almost impossible to be a doctor and an honest man, but it is obscenely impossible to be a psychiatrist without at the same time bearing the stamp of the most incontestable madness: that of being unable to resist that old atavistic reflex of the mass of humanity, which makes any man of science who is absorbed by this mass a kind of natural and inborn enemy of all genius."
- Antonin Artaud
