I Think This Just Might Work Out…

We shot the Jam Session video in a rehearsal space in Berlin, and noticed the "musicians wanted" post-board in the lobby. We produced a series of faithful renderings of these layered posts, paying particular attention to the form and language of these calls, as well as the qualities of the layered papers themselves. Meticulously rendering these posts is a type of formal portraiture – portraits of the ideal members who are being called, the bands or musicians who design the call, and the bulletin board as a site of these calls. This work lead to an outdoor project at AKA Gallery in 2009 titled "The Metal Drummer and The Wall Dog".
