Barcelona-based DJ and pop culture scholar Eduard Minobis sent me a link to Kate Wax’s latest album, Dust Collision. I loved the music, but I was also immediately struck by the way she used typography and portrait photography on the album cover. According to art director Niels Wehrspann, “The idea behind the whole typographic layout is a literal transcription of Dust Collision. These «whirling letters» will be on all releases related to the album.”
Musician Kate Wax and art director Nills Wehrspann use light projection techniques that appear to dematerialize the bodies of the performers on stage. I kept thinking that this might be what a concert by cyborgs would look like on a stage in a low-res virtual world.
