It’s still unclear what it will contain: the latest song lyrics, political ramblings or avant garde-prose… but Radiohead is set to release a single edition newspaper next week: The Universal Sigh. Slated for distribution at select locations around the world on March 28th (or on the 29th in the US and Canada), the free hard copy work is being announced as a commemorative piece to the bands new album, The King of Limbs. On the dedicated Universal Sigh website, readers are being encouraged to “post pictures of themselves and their friends reading the newspaper in locations diverse and unusual.” Also promised: “There will be other stuff too, but we haven’t thought of it yet.”
Creating painterly faces with piercing eyes and gaping mouths is the passion of artist and programmer Kevin, aka flikr on flickr. Using Vexler, one of many programs he created himself, Kevin has created a large, macabre body of work.
