    Graphic Arts Future is an experimental publication and meta-catalog for our 2015 exhibition "The Past is Stranger, the Future is a Guest" at Texas State University. Through a series of essays and interviews, contributors Alexander Valentine, Edie Fake, Todd Irwin, Daniel Mellis, Julia V. Hendrickson, Katherine Young, and Sonnenzimmer's Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi triangulate the contemporary state of the graphic arts and its relationship to technology, art, music, and story telling. The book is a accompanied by a 12” vinyl record of original music by Sonnenzimmer which hopes to illuminate the content of the book through the ears, rather than through the eyes.

about

"Graphic Arts Future" Music is a sonic take on an ever expanding graphic arts practice. Instruments are interfaces, sound is physical, and dance music is a grid. This is the sound of liquefying images, pixelated bass lines, and screen grabs.

The LP was released as part of our 2015 publication "Graphic Arts Future", a collection of essays and interviews by Nick Butcher, Edie Fake, Julia V. Hendrickson, Todd Irwin, Daniel Mellis, Nadine Nakanishi, Alexander Valentine, Katherine Young, and Anders Nilsen. The publication was produced on the occasion of Sonnenzimmer's solo exhibition "The Past is a Stranger, The Future is a Guest" at Texas State University from October 12 – November 12, 2015.
