Jonathan barnbrook recently produced two animations for the exhibition ‘DNA’ in London celebrating the influence of pioneering electronic musician and artist John Foxx.
The first animation is available here. The other one will be posted in a few weeks. The animation was created to a sound archive tape made in 1980 at the recording of John Foxx’s pioneering album Metamatic. The tape was used unedited with all gaps, hisses etc in place. The lyrics of the album are the used for the words that appear throughout.
John Foxx’s graphic work was one of the major influences upon Jonathan when he was a student of design, so he was delighted to be part of this exhibition. Hopefully there will be more collaborations between them next year.
