Visual artist Nathaniel Whitcomb is every musician’s best friend. Through use of nostalgic collages of images in motion he makes a musical experience feel otherworldly. Defying space, time and geography – his projects return us to eras we’ve never visited before. His collaborations with artists like Monster Rally, Mutual Benefit, Holy Spirits and Birkwin Jersey have given his a welcome space in the music community. His music and arts blog Think or Smile is an extension of that space, and a platform through which he and I became friends.
Most recently, Nathaniel teamed up with RxRy to create a collision of images, poetry and music, embodied in the slow, meditative movement of a jellyfish underwater, taken from footage he shot at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago.
