TRIGGERED SOUND launched last month at X Marks the Bökship (a project space in East London which promotes contemporary publishing and brings together individual practitioners creating a local publishing community) and is now available for purchase from Ti Pi Tin too.
TRIGGERED SOUND is Palaver Press’ first print publication, having originally been established in 2011 to publish sound works. This book is a collection of commissioned photographs taken by sound artists, documenting the various objects in our world that playback pre-recorded sounds at the push of a button or the winding of a gear. Alarms, toys, tape players, megaphones, subway speakers, automated messaging systems, samplers, etc. The objects of triggered sound are photographed in environments both familiar and foreign, domestic and subterranean, calling to mind the ways in which we interact with them in our daily lives either by choice or by chance. These visual portraits reflect an intriguing range of silent moments despite the contrasting function of these objects to provide timed passages of recorded audio.
I finally got around to put up online these two amazing zines by young Brooklyn based Turkish-American book artist Soner Ön, whose work is rooted in the cultural symbolism of his upbringing as well as traditions from his native ancestry.
All images in The Light In The Dark With The Neon Arms are from a curated selection of Google image search results for ‘God’. Risograph printed, this publication was inspired by a Kate Bush’s song Symphony in Blue and is an artist’s search for the universal.
The second book presents a collection of altered reproductions of covers and pages of the comic book character Richie Rich, depicted as an African-American boy. Designed by Other Means and self-publsihed by Soner himself, Richie Rich questions consequences of iconography in popular culture, such as stereotypical assumptions regarding social class, identity and prosperity.
Our Teen-Age Boys and Girls by Maggie Lee presents images of students from 1970′s negatives found a thrift store in Ohio alongside texts taken from Lester and Alice Crow’s Our Teen-age Boys and Girls, case studies of wayward youth, which was published in 1945.
The book was published by Gottlund Verlag, check out a selection of their titles in our online shop.
