Wallpaper* has collaborated with two avant-garde masters of stage and screen to guest edit the October issue. Iconic film director David Lynch and maverick stage director Robert Wilson have each edited their own section of the magazine and created their own covers, bringing peace, unity and amazing movie magic to the printed page.
Once again, Wallpaper* is pushing publishing boundaries by using rediscovered and more contemporary techniques to bring the issue's content to life. Thanks to a collaboration with creative communications agency Dentsu London, readers are able to animate Wilson's still images by using a striped sheet of acetate (provided in the issue) and a clever pre-cinema technique called ombro cinema.
On a more contemporary-tech level, QR codes that can be scanned by a smartphone take readers directly to a link where Wilson's films - of Isabella Rossellini, Brad Pitt, our sumo champion and the snowy owls - are playing, with accompanying soundtracks.
Wallpaper* will also launch its first iPad app to complement the issue, including unique content from both directors.
