Evil Eye Records

Designer | Artist Indianen
Year 2012

The Evil Eye project is the result of a residency project at the Frans Masereel Center, a center for printmaking in Kasterlee, Belgium.

During the residency we printed optical audio records: visual patterns silkscreened on heavy paper. We handed the records out in bars and on the local market in Kasterlee. On the last day of the residency a short performance was held. The local people were invited to come play the records on our home-made optical record players.

The records were only played during the performance. After the performance, it became impossible for the owner to play the audio information contained in his Evil Eye record. After they returned home from the Masereel Center, their records became again just prints, with a memory of the event and their sounds attached to them.
