Axis of Power is an installation by David Spriggs, exhibited at the Sharjah Biennial 9, United Arab Emirates 2009. ‘In a gesture to freeze time, David Spriggs jams the film projector to create a new type of machine that transfers the principles of cinema into the axioms of sculpture. Freeze the frame. Cut the filmstrip. Stack the negatives. The narrative of cinema morphs into the suspension of sculpture—both backlit with mental projections from the spectator.’ (excerpt of David Spriggs: Archaeology of Space, Catalogue text, Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Rodman Hall Brock University, 2009) I’m inspired and blown away by the power and aesthetic of it. Thank you Robin for sharing.
