Public Works Gallery
Friday, September 7, 2012 – 7:00-10:00pm
Computers Have A Lot To Answer For is a 40-year retrospective of Storm Thorgerson’s photographic prints. As one of the founders of the design studio Hipgnosis, and as the “6th member of Pink Floyd”, Thorgerson’s reality-bending vision and maximalist style have produced many of the defining images of music culture and the 20th-century at large, including the covers for Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of The Moon, Animals, and Wish You Were Here, as well as Led Zeppelin’s Houses of The Holy. Working without the aid of digital technology, his execution of elaborate sets, intricate image composition and complex photo montage is unparalleled. Computers have a lot to answer for, and the man they answer to is Storm Thorgerson.
