NEGATIVLAND: Deathsentences of the Polished & Structurally Weak
CD with deluxe 6” x 12” 64-page full-color book and die-cut outer sleeve
This beautifully packaged conceptual project is a very different move in a very different "found art" direction than the anti-copyright creations that Negativland is more known for, charting new territory for the group in many ways.
DEATHSENTENCES OF THE POLISHED AND STRUCTURALLY WEAK is a 6"x12", 64-page full-color owner’s manual... which comes with a 45-minute CD soundtrack. Conceived over many months of "scrapping" at auto wrecking yards and poring over the artifacts found in cars, the visual side of this project is a poignant, voyeuristic, disturbing and occasionally funny glimpse into the lives of those behind the wheel.
The CD is a meticulously layered, ever-shifting electro-acoustic soundscape, created to accompany the pages of the book. No bass lines, no melody, no dialogue, no singing, no beat – perhaps it is the sound of Negativland’s studio being destroyed in a car crash across 8 analog tracks.
