The Digital Fountain – Todd Slater, Bristow, 2008

Artist: Todd Slater
Type: Gig Poster
Print: Silkscreen
Size: 24 x 32
Event Date: 5.11.2008
Venue: Nissan Pavillion – Bristow, VA
Signed, numbered edition of 200

This poster is pretty much perfect for its time. Radiohead had just surprise-released In Rainbows in an all-new pay-what-you-want model, prompting Slater to give us a digital fountain comprised of 1’s and 0’s to symbolize the groundbreaking digital distribution system. The split-fountain blue-green border puts this one over the top for me. Topical and impeccably printed. Well done, Todd.

Slater was busy in 2008
