Nova Milne – Time blurs

I have taken these screen grabs from the Nova Milne website splash page. The video sees a blurring of time and memory, where elements of retro western imagery, like cars, colouration and quality of the video footage, and the usage of moving text are merged together. Within this, they merge high and low art also.nova2nova3nova4

An extract from the Nova Milne bio explains this perfectly.

“nova Milne (nee Ms&Mr) is a third mind, and living archive – an assemblage of time-perspectives that began with their documented encounter as teenagers.

Through expanded installations including time-based media, sculpture, and 2D works, nova Milne create moments of connection or disruption, often taking the form of encounters across the breach of time. They release the occult potential of found material by forging new sympathies between amateur or documentary sources and elaborate new fabrications. Their process invents a de-centered point of view and the question of inter-subjectivity, forms an ongoing curiosity alongside considerations of time, mysticism, longing, and empathy.’
