THE PROVOCATEURS UPDATE FROM CHICAGO http://www.obeygiant.com/headlines/the-provocateurs-update-from-chicago http://www.obeygiant.com/headlines/the-provocateurs-update-from-chicago#comments Mon, 28 Jul 2014 17:54:47 +0000 http://www.obeygiant.com/?p=56816 The crew and I arrived in Chicago three days ago to begin the setup for The Provocateurs art show and to start painting my mural. My mural wall is a killer spot at Wabash and 9th on one of Columbia College’s buildings. There will be several other murals going up in the same corridor by artists from The Provocateurs show including POSE, RETNA, and Cleon Peterson. The majority of the fine art is now in our gallery space safely and we are arranging the display for your viewing pleasure. Thanks to Jon Furlong for the awesome photos, and to my crew of Nic Bowers, Dan Flores, and Rob Zagula for assistance on the mural. Stay tuned for wall art updates from both indoors and outdoors.

Art Alliance | The Provocateurs Print Series http://www.obeygiant.com/headlines/art-alliance-the-provocateurs-print-series http://www.obeygiant.com/headlines/art-alliance-the-provocateurs-print-series#comments Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:00:14 +0000 http://www.obeygiant.com/?p=56787 A crucial principle of The Provocateurs show is that art should be accessible. In an effort to make work by several of these artists accessible beyond just a convenient exhibition space and free public murals, I thought it was important to produce a limited print series of fine art serigraphs by ten of the artists. These pieces are printed on archival 100% cotton rag paper with deckled edges and are available as matching number sets or individually. Many of the beautiful works in the show may be out of the price range of the average skate punk, struggling musician, or hustler of culture with student loans looming. I’m very proud of how well these prints came out, and I think they are affordable works of art. Initial sales will take place on site at Art Alliance: The Provocateurs in Chicago, but they will go for sale online at the end of the show. Email prints@artalliance.com if you’d like to be first in line to reserve a full set of the ten prints with matching numbers.

CROSS MY HEART HOPE TO DIE x SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS http://www.obeygiant.com/headlines/cross-my-heart-hope-to-die-x-subliminal-projects http://www.obeygiant.com/headlines/cross-my-heart-hope-to-die-x-subliminal-projects#comments Wed, 23 Jul 2014 22:54:17 +0000 http://www.obeygiant.com/?p=56764 SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is pleased to present Vita E Morte, the first solo show of new work by multimedia art collective Cross My Heart Hope To Die (CMHHTD). The collective consists of Sean Bonner, Brevi, Andrew Kline (Strife), and DJ Muggs (Cypress Hill).

“I love the intersection of art and music. They are both great alone, but even more powerful when they are creatively intertwined. Our next art show at Subliminal features Cross My Heart Hope To Die, an awesome art and music collective that includes Andrew Kline of hardcore band Strife, DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill, and Sean Bonner, an artist, designer, and Internet activism guru. These guys collaborated on music, art, video, and public installations all with the intention of bringing wonder and excitement back into discovering music and art. I’m a big fan of all of these guys as individuals, but the collaboration between the three takes them into unique territory. Check out more on their art show Vita E Morte here!  They will be performing live, so the show will be an audio visual extravaganza not to be missed!”

-Shepard

Opening Reception & First Public Performance By CMHHTD:

Saturday, July 26 · 8-11 pm

 Exhibition Dates: July 26 – August 23, 2014

The idea for forming CMHHTD was the result of casual discussions about the excitement that at one time came with discovering new music. The group consensus was this sense of excitement has been somewhat lost with the always on, always connected world we live in today.

CMHHTD, Nobody Wants To Die #1, 2014, 3D printed on Makerbot Replicator 2 with black nail polish

 

With Vita E Morte (which is Latin for life from death), CMHHTD is challenging ideas of what music and art and their delivery and discovery signify. By bouncing between the physical and the online, between wide release and hidden secrets, between artist and band, the group hopes to bring wonder back into art and music. The purpose of the project is to create a cross platform between the sonic experience and the visual experience. How one intercepts each medium (sonic versus visual) will impact their perception of the project as a whole.

CMHHTD, Vita E Morte, 2014

CMHHTD, Vita E Morte, 2014, Photographic print

 

The CMHHTD collective has combined high-tech custom circuitry, laser cut parts, and sensors with low-tech hand made molding, photography, screen prints, and spray painted works. These artworks are placed both in the gallery and around Los Angeles as street installations, allowing viewers to create personal connections and impressions of their own based on the location and mindset at their exact moment of discovery. In addition, the collective will be releasing an EP shortly after the opening reception of Vita E Morte. The songs on this EP will be performed for the first time opening night, providing viewers the opportunity to engage with the collective on both sonic and visual levels for a more complete sensory experience.

CMHHTD, Crossroads, 2014

CMHHTD, Crossroads, 2014, Photographic print

 

The works that constitute the core visual component of the Vita E Morte are images of nature (or images of man’s representation of nature) that have been databent. Databending is a process where the context of the digital (visual) file is disregarded and it is instead analyzed as pure data. This data is then imported into an audio editor and the file is modified as if it was a song being edited. The file is then re-exported as raw data and an image editor is ‘tricked’ into opening it as if it was a photograph. The resulting glitches are representative of disjointed context and crossed boundaries, fueling the primary intention of the entire CMHHTD project, which is to challenge preconceived classifications of art versus music. According to CMHHTD, the final imagery provides a tangible way to explore this topic because they are essentially photos being treated like songs.

 

The main images in Vita E Morte are derived from source photographs shot by either Bonner or Kline, while some are video stills pulled from the official Miracles music video released by CMHHTD. The set of smaller photographs on display are sections pulled from the larger, primary images that were printed as individual works to highlight a specific portion. This series is titled Clips and serves as a visual reference to how DJs and producers might highlight only a short ‘clip’ of a song. The third set of digital prints on display is the 90 Seconds series. These horizontal images are graphical representations of audio data from individual CMHHTD songs. Each one displays what 90 seconds of a particular song (indicated by artwork title) looks like to a photo editor if only the raw data is examined without contextualizing it as an audio file.

CMHHTD, These Wings Aren’t Broken, 2014

In addition to the photographs, the exhibition will feature plastic sculptures printed using a 3D printer that have then been hand painted, a video and sound installation, and 10 gallery versions of the music boxes that CMHHTD have displayed in random locations across the city of Los Angeles. All aspects of Vita E Morte¾from the opening night performance to the street installations to the artwork¾highlight the interactivity of this body of work and the interconnectedness that extends between various members of the group, between CMHHTD and the public, between time and location, and between subject and object.
