COOL HUNTING

Gore

by Ami Kealoha in Culture on 22 June 2006

Gore

Gore, the kaleidoscopic photo collage that's equal parts documentary project and art book by New York noise band Black Dice and their collaborator, photographer Jason Frank Rothenberg, gets a launch tomorrow 23 June 2006 at New York's New Museum. Featuring Rothenberg's dreamy anonymous landscapes and snapshot-like portraits interspersed with (and integrated into) cutouts of porn, candy wrappers, '70s-era advertisements, and other ephemera, the book shows the influence of member and fine artist Bjorn Copeland. The 50-odd pages of psychedelia—from High Times worthy marijuana spreads to a recurring eyeball theme—are not unlike listening the orchestrated cacophony of Black Dice's music itself. If you can't make it to the party, get the book from the New Musuem, D.A.P., or Amazon.
