Windfall Comfort Zone


Enlightened look back at an Israeli illustrator show from January 2015 set to my track Windfall [albums: Windfall (2004), Reflected.10×10 (2012)]. The show gave a set of illustrators a medium constraint (square format light-box) and told them to go crazy. So awesome – constraints are the new freedom

32 works of contemporary illustrators interpreting the concept “Comfort zone.” A large square format light box was designed to give illustrators working limits and challenge them to leave their comfort zone. The light box led many of the artists to use light as a key element in their work.
The decision to use the medium of a light box is multi-faceted: first, more physical dimension (both of depth and a light box)… And the use of light adds a dimension symbolic of self-irony. In Hebrew (and other languages), the concept of “illustration” comes from the verb “to shine, to shed light on something.”
