Hannah Whitaker

Hannah Whitaker Work from Victory over the Sun!. “Much of the work takes visual cues from pioneering formalists, but does so at a critical distance.

Jim Campbell

Jim Campbell Work from his oeuvre. “Mention Jim Campbell in engineering circles and people will assume you’re talking about one of the leading developers of HDTV.
