A chorus line of corkscrews dancing unison inside an old tube like western style can-can girls. Nemo Gould, an artist, made the Alco-hologram Ã¢â‚¬Ëœa large magnifying screen from an old big screen T.V. diffuses and distorts the scene. It makes the whole thing a bit more dream-like, kind of muddy, the way it would look if you were actually watching it on an old tube television.’
Ã¢â‚¬ËœIf you are like me, you have always felt that wine openers look like little people. After finding several of them at the dump, I decided to finally do something about it. I also like this piece because it reminds me that I once wanted to get into stop frame animation. The T.V. cabinet makes the whole thing feel like you are watching a film, a very repetitive film anyway.’ Click http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PEU2Rp7r8U to watch it move.
Nemo uses found metals, vehicle parts, furniture, and bits and pieces of old tools and appliances, to create his series of kinetic Fauxbots: Ã¢â‚¬Ëœmechanical sculptures inspired by popular conceptions of robots.’
