From china tea sets to hyper-real South Yorkshire landscapes
Blank Screen Syndrome, writes David Thompson, is an exhibition/retrospective of work by Phil Wolstenholme, whose computer-generated images and animations have been used by, among others, Warp Records, Gavin Bryars and The Designers Republic (See Reputations, Eye 71). Of these early album sleeves and promotional images, Warp’s Artificial Intelligence compilations are perhaps the most familiar.

A quality, quarterly broadsheet made by moonlighting journalists
Sitting next to a self-absorbed Telegraph reader on the train last week I was reminded of the public transport of fifteen or twenty years ago, similarly packed and stuffy, but full of broadsheet readers of every political stripe.

John L. Walters’ BBC feature about jazzdesign, on the iPlayer until 13 July
Earlier this week, I had the chance to live out my boyhood fantasy of being a late-night jazz DJ, writes John L. Walters. Well, I was actually commissioned to write and present a short (16') feature about the relationship between jazz and graphic design. (So it wasn’t exactly Clint Eastwood in Play Misty For Me, or ‘Lester the Nightfly’.)

Marjane Satrapi’s graphic novel is detourned to chart new events in Iran
Appropriations and detournements are a time-honoured tradition in comics, writes Roger Sabin. The 1930s Tijuana Bibles took Popeye and put him in pornographic storylines, a 1970s underground comic made Beryl the Peril a symbol of abortion rights, and who could forget 1988’s Breaking Free, with Tintin as an anarchist agitator. Now comes Persepolis re-imagined as a comment on Iran’s post-election uprising, spreadpersepolis.com.
