When the latest issue of Wallpaper came out, I posted about the plans to also release an accompanying iPad app featuring works by the issue’s two guest editors, David Lynch and Robert Wilson. Well, it’s now out as a free download, and you should go and take a look.
It’s quite simple as an app, but does what it should do well — give you some extra video content by each creator, with the only other extra a brief intro to who they are after you click on each name. Wilson contributes quite a few “video portraits,” but I was especially interested in Lynch’s section, which is comprised of a short that revisits the main character from his seminal film, Eraserhead.
Every time I hear that song (“In Heaven”) I can’t help but think of the great Pixies cover, which is still one of my favorite b-sides from them.
