Time becomes a question of proximity, as duration and distance determine whether we find ourselves within or outside the picture, pointing or pointed out, threatened or soothed. The work might serve as a kind of therapy strategy, that is, a method for achieving a sense of temporal continuity, and ultimately, access to continuity’s inevitable gaps. The project will be defined by one central indiscernibility: whether the voyage has already occurred, or has yet to take place. The work is an inquiry into questions of process and feedback, that is, the space between production and reception, the past and future, and the near and the far. Ultimately, I attempt to locate the points where each set might become indiscernible.
Nico recently relocated from NYC to attend the MFA program at UCSD. He has exhibited and performed in the U.S., the UK, Italy, and Germany, most recently at the European Media Art Festival, Osnabrueck.
