In the Spirit of Nostalgia 1
This artwork is part of a new series the artist is working on in his studio that is based on the remnants of memories. Robertson is particularly interested in how we digest and retain memories. In the artist’s words, “life is but a memory and the objects in these pieces were once static and real things that one could hold but are now increasingly online and virtual”. This means objects like these (levels, wooden type) are sometimes less seen and retrieved, as if posting them online solidifies them in time, rarely to be revisited. The components of this artwork include small antique spirit levels from London, England.
