This is an off-set print of an original drawing/collage collaboration on an old "Il Trovatore" player piano scroll that was laying around in Stikman's studio. During an extended stay in his hometown, Ekg suggested to Stikman that they do a zine together, but rather than sticking to the standard booklet-style format, they decided to use the player piano scroll, which already expressed themes present in both artists' work. For Stikman, the scroll becomes another cultural artifact-as-environment for him to live in, subsume and embody, creating an ever-expanding equivalence between his mutating omnipresent character and all other physical forms. For Ekg, the player piano scroll becomes a landscape of code and aesthetic circuitry, a system of mechanical impulses that instigate resonance, vibrations, signals, heartbeats, pulses, waves, blips.
