The first overview of the internationally praised video artist Nicolas Provost
With texts by authorities in their fields Neville Wakefield and Leo Goldsmith
Over 15 years, Nicolas Provost fundamentally changed video art. Nicolas Provost: Dream Machine is the first overview of his work and a visually challenging book, with texts by big names, such as Neville Wakefield and Leo Goldsmith.
Nicolas Provost calls himself a sculptor with film, or a creator of images and sounds. With films like The Plot Point Trilogy and The Invader, Nicolas Provost has built an impressive oeuvre. This book talks about his journey through the world of video art and films, but it is also a visual discovery on its own. The book features stills from Provost's movies, images of his video equipment, fragments from dialogues, and texts by a number of internationally-renowned authors.
