Alex Trochut: Binary Prints

Today kicks off the much-anticipated site launch for Alex Trochut‘s Binary Prints project. Exploring the duality that can 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. Alex called on James Murphy, Caribou, Four Tet, Damian Lazarus, Orbital, 2ManyDJs and others to create a series of portraits that explore the people behind the music. 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. 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.
