I am very pleased to have a copy of Christian Patterson's book, Sound Affects, after much emailing, a couple of phone calls and then being given the once over, twice, by his gallery (Kaune, Sudendorf; evidently they had only brought a handful with them). The benefits to being from Wisconsin are few and far between, we have to grab them where we can. The design is clean and straightforward allowing the images and the eye to meet without interference. The images and sequence (as you can glimpse above) bluesy, frowsy, blunt, musical, Memphis.
The original prints at Kaune, Sudendorf's booth at Next are exactly as I guessed they would be given his background, stunning. There were quite a few prints (I won't name names) at Art Chicago and Next that left a great deal to be desired in their technical sense. These are of the highest order.
We were able to connect in the afternoon and finally, having written back and forth several times, put face to name. I forgot to tell him two things before I had to catch a train:
1. I love the book printing experience he put up on his site (warning: make sure your speaker is not at full volume before clicking link)
2. I still swoon at this video from nearly a year ago.
I miss his posts but I'm glad he is making work, after all that should be the first order of priority.
