Day #209/365: Signal and signposts from and via Mr Julian House (#2); the worlds created by an otherly geometry
Trails and Influences: Electronic Ether. Case #28/52.
In one way or another I’ve visited the work of Julian House before around these parts a number of times (in particular Day #59/365)… but amongst the fields of zeros and ones I recently stumbled upon a place dedicated to the design work of Mr House, both Ghost Box and Intro/other commercial work, wherein it says something along the lines of “Please, no work inspired by…”.
Fair enough but as I’ve wandered towards and through this year in the country I’ve come across a fair bit of work that if not inspired by Julian House’s work, at least shares some similarities in intent/design and I think I’d like to see a corner of the ether that brought together both the signal and signposts of Mr Julian House and the work of those which points down vaguely similar pathways… this is work which often seems to make use of geometric shapes and patterns to invoke a particular kind of otherlyness, to allow a momentary stepping elsewhere…
So, along those lines, here is a snapshot of the aforementioned abode of Julian House, along with some designs that I’ve stumbled and tumbled upon along the way which wander down some similar pathways…
(I’ve been intrigued, fascinated and inspired by the Julian House produced videos for the Broadcast and The Focus Group Witchcults… album for a fair old while (see Day #33/365 for more on such things). They’re just lovely… I may well need to take a return journey to wander amongst them at some point during the pathways of this year in the country….
