Title The All-Seeing Eye
(The Hardcore Techno Version)
Artist Pierre Bismuth is best known as the
co-writer of the script for the movie Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, for which
he shared an Academy Award in 2005
with director Michel Gondry and Charlie
Kaufman. His works investigate how
we comprehend the cultural forms of
art, fashion, print media and film, and
are often characterised by modest and
inventive approaches to media as diverse
as origami, collage and neon.
The Artwork In his second collaboration
with Gondry, Pierre revisits the disquieting
themes of memory and erasure. While
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind plays
on a television in the corner, we witness
a room being stripped bare -- with each
rotation of the camera another object
disappears. In homage to the artist's
fondness for 'low-fi' special e ects, a
360-degree rotating camera reveals the
white space that remains when books,
appliances and even the view falls away.
