The work of Nicolas Sassoon makes use of various computer-based aesthetics to generate fantasized visions of architectures, landscapes and domestic environments. While most of Sassoon’ s work is published online through the format of animated gifs, the artists has in collaboration with other artists, architects, curators, music producers, and fashion designers, materialized this web-based practice in a diverse range of mediums such as sculpture, prints, textiles, and site-specific installations. Sassoon’ s work often explores the material application of immaterial concepts, through a practice that investigates the manner in which virtual spaces and thinking can (or cannot) be inscribed within the physical realm.
