Head over to the beautiful city of Ghent, Belgium this weekend to witness a set by Derrick May, one of the pioneers of the techno that hailed from Detroit and took the world by storm.

The whole night through visitors are invited to the five other locations, where Sysmo & DJ Grazzhoppa, KEDA, the threesome Khalifé-Schumacher-Tristano, Pnut & István Várdai, and Nacht und Traüme will offer a unique music experience.

Tickets are €27 each and are available at odegandbynight.be

Sabato Visconti’s Glitch Photography

Sabato_Visconti_Glitch_Photography_01 Visual artist and photographer Sabato Visconti transforms images into unexpected glitches, resulting in an odd, disarranged aesthetic. He creates these dizzying patterns with the use of readily available apps such as Pixel Drifter although sometimes he sorts out the pixels himself through a time-consuming coding process: “You get an idea more or less of what you’re going to get, but you can’t really predict it. And that’s part of the charm  –  you don’t have control over what you’re doing.” – Sabato Visconti Read More »

Photographer Alma Haser‘s series ‘Twins’ consists of two parts with the second coming out in November. This first release features two women mirroring each other in every move, aiming to become one: “I have always been fascinated by twins and their closeness in looks and attributes. Jess and Mona are of course not twins, and didn’t even know each other before the shoot, but they now call each other Afro sisters.” – Alma HaserAlma_Haser_twins_08 Alma_Haser_twins_07 Alma_Haser_twins_06 Alma_Haser_twins_05 Alma_Haser_twins_04 Alma_Haser_twins_03 Alma_Haser_twins_02
