Alex Trochut + Binary Prints: Creative Review

​Alex Trochut’s Binary Prints project is featured as Best in Book in the May issue and 2014 Annual of Creative Review. “Trochut became interested in the duality that could 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.”

About Binary Prints: “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. Anyone who has been present at those transcendental moments of communion at a show can attest to the experience as an awakening - a nighttime rebirth of mind and body. There is a literal translation of the inverted blinking eye, which shows the artists emerging into their nocturnal personas, bringing them into focus, from an anonymous being to an icon of music and sound. 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.”
