Sights & Sounds Presents Wilco: 'Being There' by Joe Van Wetering

Joe Van Wetering

It’s still kinda sorta’ Wednesday so it’s still wallpaper time! This week’s Sight & Sound is for the Wilco album Being There and was done by our amazing curator, Joe Van Wetering. I’ve been a fan of Joe’s work for what feels like a long time now. He’s got such a great, colorful style and makes work that always feels fun and vibrant. For Being There he took inspiration from the title itself. In his own words:

I did Being There for my wallpaper. I hadn’t listened to the album before this but I had seen the Peter Sellers movie in which the album gets its name. Luckily it was on Netflix Instant so I got to go back and re-watch it. If you haven’t seen it before you should probably check it out.

I was a bit lost on what I wanted to do exactly so I started with some shots from the movie and just kept adding on top of it. This ended up a bit crazier than some of my other work but I still enjoy the end product and hope you do too!

Check back next Wedensday for the next wallpaper, Wilco’s Summerteeth.
