Alex Trochut’s Binary Prints

Alex Trochut is an illustrator, designer, and typographer based in both Barcelona and Brooklyn. His series of Binary Prints pushes the boundaries of traditional two-dimensional work by showing two separate images on one surface – one image is visible in the light, and a completely different image is visible in the dark.

Trochut invented this elaborate technique himself, collaborating with some of the premiere contemporary electronic musicians, such as James Murphy, Caribou, Four Tet, Damian Lazarus, John Talabot, and Acid Pauli. Binary Prints explore the duality of the performers’ personalities. The prints come alive in the dark, just like the DJs themselves.
