Reading J.D. Salinger under Antarcticavimeo.com

A few days ago I linked to an article on Gareth Long’s lenticular interpretations of 90s era J.D. Salinger book covers.

Due to the visual effect of viewing these from different angles, video does better justice to the works than a sequence of photos. Helpfully, Gareth Long provides such videos on his website. I’ve taken these and, with permission from the artist, edited them into a single clip. I also added a sound track, field recordings taken below Antarctic ice shelfs. The two seemed to fit somehow.

Gareth Long’s giant lenticular prints based on the iconic-yet-anachronous 1991 cover designs for JD Salinger’s books are freaking me out right now … Something an aesthete in an early Star Trek movie might have had hanging on his wall.

To fully appreciate these you have to watch the videos on Gareth Long’s website.
