'SKYLINE OF THE RECURRING DREAM' - 2015

GABRIEL LESTER
SKYLINE OF THE RECURRING DREAM

Artist Gabriel Lester, inventor and film director shows a variation of one of his famous shadow animations in the corner window of de Bijenkorf Amsterdam. Drawing inspiration from Nietzsche and his eternal return (infinite repetitions), this location-specific piece is called ‘Skyline of the Recurring Dream’ and presents a conveyor belt that moves in an infinite loop, creating cityscapes and panoramas through ever-changing shadows. With second hand toys, gadgets and scale structures Lester visualizes his imaginary land and city. “In this installation nature and culture merge together through the combination of two conveyor belts. This creates a perpetual associative story, repeating itself while simultaneously taking on new forms.”
