Saint-Georges et le Dragon

Saint-Georges et le Dragon

Two video animations, each with their own rhythm, play in loops. One shows a typewriter tracing the accumulation of time, while the other shows time, as the movement of a pedestrian moving step by step closer to the typewriter. When getting too close, the pedestrian abruptly jumps back and starts over in its own sisyphusian loop once again. The work is inspired not by the history of Nikola Tesla but by the fact that there actually is such a history. Jocelyn Robert is founder of the Avatar artist-run centre in Quebec City, trained as an architect, and works on the composition of interactive computer pieces.
