Peter Crnokrak is an internationally renowned graphic artist who works under the nom de guerre, The Luxury of Protest. His work is a crossover between art and design, and addresses culturally relevant themes including geopolitics, generative aesthetics and the integration of science and art.
Love Will Tear Us Apart Again is one of Peter’s better know works. The piece maps all known cover versions of the iconic song by Joy Division mimicking a circular mitochondrial map structure where the influence of one gene on another can most effectively be visualised. Although available information was limited, the 85+ recorded covers are mapped in relation to the original recordings by the band with the graph showing time since original recording, recording artist, release name/date and label.
Love Will Tear Us Apart Again was been produced in five different editions – the piece for sale here is a previously unavailable, promotional-only edition printed chalk white ink on metallic bronze holographic foil paper. Size : 700mm X 990mm. Signed by the artist. Print by K2 Screen London.http://theluxuryofprotest.com/
