Joey Patrickt [USA]

Joey Patrickt is an American artist who is involved in mail art networking since the late 1970s. He sent us a digital collage print inspired by Thomas Pynchon’s novel “Gravity’s Rainbow”, published in 1973. This science fiction/historical novel that tells the story about building V-2 rocket by Germans during WWII, with the focus on a group of people who are trying to find a mysterious “Schwarzgerät” (“black device”). The book has a complex structure and is packed with historical facts, conspiracy theories, paranoia, psychology, sexuality… Joey’s collage brings to us this apocalyptic world, with a hint of humour.
