UVA take on Battles

United Visual Artists have brought their light installation skills to the promo for Tonto, the next single from acclaimed US band Battles. Produced by Warp Films, the 8-minute video sees the group performing amidst a sea of poles of light – each one responding to the fractured sounds within the track, which is taken from Battles’ recently released album, Mirrored.

The 6 Faces of CR

The October issue of Creative Review features six different cover images, drawn from the winners of our Photography Annual. The photographers featured are, top row, left to right: Giles Revell, Matthew Georgeson, Julia Fullerton-Batten
Second row, left to right: Nadav Kander, Richard Bailey, Nick Georghiou.
As this is a double issue – a normal issue plus, turn the magazine over and start again from the back for the Photography Annual – each copy effectively has two covers (the issue cover and the Photography Annual cover). To confuse things further, and to make the most of some of the great work featured inside, we have produced the issue in three different versions. All three are available on the newsstand so you can choose the one you like best. Or, who knows, even buy them all…

Wilson’s Last Project

Pennine Lancashire identity (detail) on black background
As the tributes following his untimely death made clear, Anthony H Wilson played an enormous role in the rejuvenation of North West England. Although he will rightly be remembered principally for his part in placing Manchester at the heart of popular culture, the final months of Wilson’s life were devoted, with his partner Yvette Livesey, to helping an area just to the north of the city. The project was also to be the last product of what has been one of the great creative partnerships, that between Wilson and designer Peter Saville. We talked to Saville about the project and heard from the people behind the creation of Pennine Lancashire.

Cadbury’s Dairy Milk: Gorilla

Woah Lord!
Debuting on UK TV tonight, a new spot for Cadbury’s Dairy Milk looks set to lodge a certain Phil Collins “classic” well and truly into the collective short-term memory. Seriously, anyone who happens to be watching Big Brother this evening and clocks this fantastic minute-and-a-half spot from Fallon will be unconsciously pumping their fists and going “Woah Lord” til the early hours. You can watch it here.
