Knightshift

Abstract:
“Knightshift” references themes of high romance and chivalry found in old and new media such as medieval fairytales and videogames. The artist makes use of videogame imagery and animated gifs to build a modern jousting spectacle. The knight is shown galloping on his pixelated steed towards the dragon, the opponent, or the dame, attempting to establish a more utopian world.
