Removing all identifying features is typically a job for assassins, and the idiot who thought fans could look at a makeup-free Gene Simmons without wanting to assassinate themselves. Making the familiar unfamiliar for the sake of art: Film The Blanks.
Describing himself as both "very new media" and "a dog person (though not literally as that would be hideous and terrifying)", the London graphic designer behind these silkscreened prints abstracts iconic film posters by reducing them to angular blocks of colour, then removing all identifying features (faces, logos, etc), blanking out names, titles & taglines, and then titling them with a cryptic cluedo...what? Okay, fine, "clue". Some of the nouveaux anonymity, not quite revealed:
A Complicated Man: One of the most thorough deconstructions, with nothing left but the shadow of the title of this bad motherf***er of a movie that has absolutely nothing to do with Polish-British nuclear physicist Józef Rotblat.
Milk Plus: Named for the drug-laden, full-fat cocktail imbibed by Droogs before a night of ultra-violence, these concentric triangles leave almost everything up to your fevered imagination, which unfortunately means that in a few moments you'll start violently gagging.
Sehr GroÎen Brechen Aus: A nod to the most daring Steve McQueen movie ever to involve lots of whistling, this number's title translates as "very rough break out", though really, how hard is it to bounce a dot off a horizontal line?
The designer's also hoping to turn the project into a postcard book, whose 100 mini-mailers will each bear a faux BBFC warning on the back, e.g., "Contains frequent faux-Scottish accent, grievous folly, and incompetence by a senior citizen. Some dinosaurs." -- a slightly unfair way to describe Gene, as he never tries to sound Scottish.
