Graffiti // Thursday, April 16, 2015
“Graffiti to me has pretty much ruined the world,” said David Lynch recently and that’s when we took Lynch off that pedestal we held him up on for so long. “It’s ruined it for film. When you go to a place to film, everything is graffitied so if you don’t want it, you have to paint it out. So much great architecture is graffitied over, so many great train stations, factories, are graffitied over, and it’s a horrible, horrible thing. Trees have gone away and graffiti has taken their place,” Lynch says.

Oscar-winning auteur David Lynch brilliantly re-appropriates his brooding, cinematic aesthetic in his first photography book, The Factory Photographs, and his coinciding exhibition at Photographers’ Gallery, curated by Petra Giloy-Hirtz. Fascinated by windswept factories and the dark, enigmatic quality of smokestacks, detached pipes, and the textures of decay, Lynch's denuded black-and-white photographs were shot in various locations including New York, Poland, Germany and England.

Twin Peaks is one of Martin Woutisseth's favorite TV series. In his re-creation of the television show, Martin needed to illustrate 33 characters. He speaks about the richness of the Twin Peaks universe, in terms of symbolism and detail, and wanted to be sure that nothing was lost in translation.

By the way, we are again curating the art portion of the annual Outside Lands Music and Art Festival in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park this summer. We bring this up now because Nine Inch Nails, the comeback version, will be headlining one of the nights. So without further ado, we want to show you the new music video by NIN, "Came Back Haunted," directed by the legendary and consistently interesting and progressive David Lynch. This video could cause a seizure, dance party, industrial hangout session, or just plain listening pleasure. Trent Reznor never looked so blurry.
