Standard Model Catastrophes is both a look back and a glimpse of what lies ahead for multimedia artist Josh Graham. After designing concert visuals for both independent bands and some of the biggest musical acts in the world, Josh is now serving as Soundgarden’s creative director – a position which has allowed the scope of his work to increase exponentially.
On display will be works from the past 10+ years, including concert visuals, music videos, and video art, as well as his most recent visuals for Soundgarden’s live performances. Featured works include concert visuals from Soundgarden, Jay-Z, Drake, Neurosis, and A Storm Of Light, and music videos for Dillinger Escape Plan, Eyehategod, and Isis.
Standard Model Catastrophes will also see the world premiere of “Watchmaker,” a brand new installation custom-designed for the Made in NY Media Center’s 360-degree projection space. From Josh: “Watchmaker focuses on the current rising escalation between the US/Nato and Russia, focusing specifically on the thousands of nuclear warheads that are currently armed and ready to launch.” The installation is set to the avant-garde electronica song, Still Life, by Gazelle Twin (aka British composer, producer and musician Elizabeth Bernholz).
