Nicolas Sassoon – TIDES

Artists is pleased to present TIDES, a solo exhibition by Canadian-based French artist and member of online art collective Computers Club, Nicolas Sassoon.

The work of Nicolas Sassoon revolves around the relations between computers, architecture, landscapes and domestic environments. Sassoon’s practice uses the Internet and its online essence for visual experimentation, often taking the form of optical animated gifs.

TIDESĀ originates from a recent visit of the artist to Biarritz, a charming city on the French Atlantic coast, inspired by the city and its surroundings, the sea and its movements.

The exhibition features 6 animations inspired from fading memories of the ocean surface and evolve through a repetitive aesthetic almost recalling the water pattern and its endless flow.

Every animation in the show is named after a state of the tide, when thin layers of water slowly expand and retreat over large areas of sand creating always new and unexpected forms.

(Any work exhibited by an artist on was only available to view during the dates of that show. After that period, no record of those works remained on the server. For examples of this artist’s work, please visit their above website link.)
