A Few Select Bits of All Knowledge: A Visual Archive
07.27.17 - 08.19.17
For this show, Nickel mines the image collection of the Internet Archive—an ever-expanding visual database of user generated digital (and digitized) media—for the raw materials to create large-scale scroll-like tableaus. In his recent projects, Nickel has focused on the physical presence of the Internet, recasting its virtual and disembodied appearance as a physical object.
