Woman’s Hour – Conversations LP Music Videos & Visual Branding

"My collaboration with [Oliver] Chanarin began with a love of didactic images: images that explain things; how to resuscitate a dying man, or put a chain on your chihuahua, or fall over without hurting yourself. These are images made with a certain purpose, but they can be very beautiful too. Accidentally beautiful, which is what...

Blues Music: Marketing Nostalgia Using “Race Records” in the 1920s & 1930s

Folklorists like to romanticize blues music as being a pure expression of culture, but recorded blues music was carefully marketed to its intended audience from its very beginning. As early as the 1920s, music aimed at African-Americans was labeled as "race music", and the best way to advertise it was in the pages of African-American...

The Radical Capacity of Glitch Art: Expression through an Aesthetic Rooted in Error

There is...

Vedas by Nicholas Alan Cope and Dustin Edward Arnold: Encountering the Abstracted Body and Architectural Persona

There is no romance as elusive and magnetic as that between body and space. The pursuit of distinctive identity, formulaic functions and ideal wholeness between the human self and environment (naturally encountered or human-created) has impressed upon every aesthetic expression. Vedas, a collaborative photographic project between Nicholas Alan Cope and Dustin Edward Arnold, continues this...Read...

ERAAS – “Crescent” / “Ghost” Music Videos

The music video for “Crescent” is a bizarre piece of work, minimal and almost Lynchian in feel, without much going on save for slow movements and small textural or geometric changes.

Worldwide Collaborations Between Kyle Noble and Jamie Irvine

Scottish illustrators Kyle Noble and Jamie Irvine travel the world individually but remain tethered together through the constant exchange of twisted, fantastical comics. Emerging from their psychedelic landscapes — some of which hardly resemble landscapes at all — come floating heads with third eyes, praying mantises with Madonna streaming out of the top of their...Read...
