Alos’s art book Embrace the Darkness is a new special release by Occulto, with photos by Giulio di Mauro, original illustrations by Gio Pistone, and texts By Klaus Miser, Renzo Zaia and Giulia Ferrato, among others. The publication accompanies a 12-inch vinyl record co-produced by Archaeological Records and Dio Drone.
This edition is produced by exposing a sheet of photographic paper to ultraviolet light. Not being fixed, the image is destined to fade away gradually each time it is exposed to light and observed, and to be short-lived just like the flower it depicts.
Radio is a poetry zine in print and sound. It emerged from a rediscovered passion for poetry blended with collective reflections on sustainable self-publishing, a decade-long involvement with sound experiments, and a soft spot for ‘radio’ as medium, technology, and (multilingual and multimeaning) word.
Tilted poplar trees trying to straighten up in a lab, Alan Turing’s jokes and prophecies, a 18th century machine that utters “MA-MA”, the discarding of the words “discernible”, “underwear” and “sphagnum” as waste, the portrait of a machine learning system as a botanical artist, self-delusion at the service of the secret services.
Fake nutial pads, fantastic mice with French names, super-intelligent dogs, “green cure” cod, incredibily ancient fossils, funny cephalopods, and, of course, Darwin. Let’s get ready for a post-human world together!
