Gray Nicol

Big Time (2009)

6 min 44 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Black & White / Sound

Using subtle sleight of hand Nicol animates a face into life; at first subtly then with increasing urgency. Part of a suite of video works made in 2009 by Nicol which were based on portraits of people whom he recalled from memory and attempted to represent through sculpture, video and time.
