Approaching my house today, I saw that my mailbox looked FULL of mail. The top lid was open, and I suspected I had received some sort of package. Soon I realized it wasn’t a package, but some sort of Art Print gently stuffed into my box.

I get zines and packages all the time from artists around the world. It’s not uncommon to get an envelope from Japan on the same day I get a postcard from New York. Publishing an art zine for 13+ years has it’s privileges for sure. But until today, I had never received a print, postage paid in the corner with no packing materials. Pretty cool!

Long story short, I have no idea who sent this to me. Taking a look at the return address, and doing a quick google, I find this Portland based band with a quite terrible website:

Good lord! Google & The Arcade Fire are back with another internet enabled video that breaks all technology records for music videos. It’s a nail in the coffin for MTV yet is also another reason why music videos are as relevant as they’ve ever been. Love love love.

Binary Prints by Alex Trochut

12:46 am in art,music,musik dustin hostetler


Trochut became interested in the duality that could be represented in one two-dimensional work on paper. He invented a process through which two completely separate images could be shown on one surface––one which appears in light, and one which appears only in the dark.

What followed was a collaboration with some of the premiere electronic musicians of our time. Trochut called on James Murphy, Caribou, Four Tet, Damian Lazarus, Acid Pauli, John Talabot, Lucy and others to create a series of portraits that explore the people behind the music. Discussing themes of both visual and auditory natures, Trochut created portraits that reflect the musician’s vision of their own work and identity. These nocturnal portraits “wake up” in the dark, just as the DJs “come alive” at night, as do audiences under the spell of their music. Anyone who has been present at those transcendental moments of communion at a show can attest to the experience as an awakening––a nighttime rebirth of mind and body. There is a literal translation of the inverted blinking eye, which shows the artists emerging into their nocturnal personas, bringing them into focus, from a anonymous being to an icon of music and sound. Like the experiential discovery inherent in live music, these portraits create layers for the viewers to feel and pull apart, combining the universal with the personal.” Totally fucking awesome:
