Geert-Jan Hobijn - Witteveen+Bos Art+Technology Award 2014
What an amazing and suitable homage to Hobijn, founder of Staalplaat and Staalplaat Soundsystem. The beautiful design is completely in line with the characteristics outlined by the Witteveen+Bos Art+Technology foundation: “Hobijn (1959) is an open-minded, enthusiastic artist with a boundless curiosity. Fascinating by sound and space and making use of pedestrian materials, Geert-Jan is constantly devising new creations to use in his experiments.” This book shows some of his work through several photos, an introduction by Douglas Kahn, and an essay by Jorinde Seijdel. Nice additional media: a 7″ EP with locked grooves that you can play manually or with a turntable, and a small electronic sound generator that reacts to light.
