Working across various disciplines including art direction, graphic design, photography, typography and motion design, Parisian multidisciplinary platform, Ill-Studio is currently exhibiting at London’s KK Outlet

The exhibition, entitled 72 Dots Per Inch, takes inspiration from the world wide web, and follows on from the studio’s recent publication, Moodcyclopedia, an encyclopedic book of the studio’s references and how these have influenced its work.

The show is chock-full of weird and wonderful found, doctored and collaged imagery – all found on t’internet and printed as a series of monochrome prints. The studio members have also taken photographs based on internet images but re-imagined off-line and shot in-camera.

Specially for the show, the studio has directed a video entitled Graphics Interchange Formats (still shown above) which takes the shape of a giant animated gif, that references and celebrates the amateurism of YouTube culture.

72 Dots Per Inch runs until March 31 at KK Outlet, 42 Hoxton Square, London, N1 6BP.

CR in Print

Thanks for visiting the CR website, but if you are not also reading CR in print you’re missing out. Our March issue is an illustration special with features on Clifford Richards, Pick Me Up, the relationship between illustrators and writers, the making of the cover of the New York Times Magazine and a powerful essay by Lawrence Zeegen calling on illustrators to become more engaged with the wider world and accusing the profession of withdrawing “from the big debates of our society to focus on the chit-chat and tittle-tattle of inner-sanctum nothingness”.

The best way to make sure you receive CR in print every month is to subscribe – you will also save money and receive our award-winning Monograph booklet every month. You can do so here.
