When he spoke at our Here conference earlier this summer, Rafaël Rozendaal gave us a fascinating insight into how his online artwork now spills over into physical spaces and the interesting dialogue that throws up. Not content with exploring his practice in the context of an exhibition, Rafael has now been documented in print form as well, as part of designer Philippe Karrer’s Spheres series. Each issue of Spheres is: “dedicated to a young artist and their work…exploring character, surroundings, everyday life, inspirations and ideas using unconventional innovative formats so as to create a different, more visual approach and understanding of the artist and his or her work.”
And the issue dedicated to Rafaël looks brilliant, featuring insights from the man himself and giving his usually screen-based artworks a new place to play.
