Michael Stipe with Douglas Coupland: Our Interference Times

A Visual Record


Featured spread is from 'Michael Stipe with Douglas Coupland: Our Interference Times.'

For this second book in an ongoing exploratory series, multifaceted artist Michael Stipe has collaborated with the writer and artist Douglas Coupland on an investigation of how analog imagery is crashing on the shores of our digital future. For Stipe the signature mark of this phenomenon is the moiré pattern. Culled from Stipe’s vast archive of personal images, the book is a contemplation on the tug-of-war between pixels and halftone, between past memory and new memory and their vagaries of representation.

As an undergraduate studio art major at the University of Georgia, Michael Stipe (born 1960) studied photography and painting before leaving school upon the formation of R.E.M., the band for which he served as frontman and singer/songwriter until its dissolution in 2011. The sensibility that he began to develop during his time as an art student transferred to his spectrum of work for R.E.M., from art directing all graphic, video and stage design, to writing, composing and performance, and his iconoclastic personal style. Stipe’s visibility as a media figure in the popular culture of the 1980s and ’90s left an indelible mark on the aesthetic trends of the time, many of which have trickled down to contemporary culture.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Guardian

Miranda Sawyer

There are a lot of regimented grids in the book, though these are often out of whack, or they’re details of something that you can’t quite work out, that you think is something different. On more than one occasion, you find yourself turning your head, wondering: What IS that?, until you see. Photographs are laid out to play off each other, with one almost chatting to its facing companion.

Garage

Nick Fulton

[Our Interference Times] addresses [Stipe's] anxiety that digital technology is eroding people’s association with the analog world and driving a wedge between humanity and nature, between young and old.

New York Times: T Magazine

Jameson Fitzpatrick

Stipe... has trained his eye on places where the analog and the digital intersect to form the pattern of the current moment.

A strange and provocative abstraction from Michael Stipe and Douglas Coupland

A strange and provocative abstraction from Michael Stipe and Douglas Coupland

Featured spreads are from photographer and R.E.M. front man Michael Stipe's new artist's book, Our Interference Times, made with the influential Canadian writer and artist, Douglas Coupland, with whom Stipe has been discussing ideas and culture for more than two decades. A glitchy, almost hallucinogenic, collage of images from Stipe's massive personal archive, this strange and provocative 200-page abstraction captures an in-between state, a constantly shifting moiré pattern neither analog nor digital, referencing both past and future. At the end, the image captions reads like a readymade autobiographical poem. continue to blog
