But illustrator, designer and typographer Alex Trochut¬†has invented a printing technique that allows two separate images to be displayed on one surface. He calls the pieces Binary Prints and the image seen when the lights are on is far different from what appears when the lights go down.

In his first run of prints, Trochut enlisted photographers Marc Ambros and Chris Rubino to take portraits of several electronic musicians and DJs, including Caribou, Four Tet, Acid Paul, James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, John Talabot, Lucy and Lazarus.

“Discussing themes of both visual and auditory natures, Trochut created portraits that reflect the musician’s vision of their own work and identity. These nocturnal portraits ‘wake up’ in the dark, just as the DJs ‘come alive’ at night, as do audiences under the spell of their music,” reads the Binary Prints website.

The project is ongoing and will expand to include more portraits and exhibitions. Find out more about the printing technique, charity tie-in and Trochut’s works¬†here.
