Album of the week! Radio Head OK COMPUTER
When I rediscovered Bill Henson in my high school art diary last week, I was reminded of that year at school and my mood at the time. During that school project and being introduced to Henson's work for the first time I was listening to Radio Head, OK COMPUTER. On reflection I think If you were to look at one of Henson's macabre works while listening to the track Karma Police, it would make for an interesting match. The slow pace and hopeless air in the notes used, I think, is alike to Henson's desperate but still photographs. It is as though there is a weight in the air in the song and in Henson's works. I just thought it was an interesting parallel to explore.
