Simone Müller: here we go again

In April/May 2008 I joined Pierced Arrows (ex-Dead Moon) – a Rock ’n’ Roll band from Portland, OR – on their European Tour. Being asked to sell the band’s merchandise I came up with the idea of a tour documentation and turned it into my diploma project. After the tour I had a mix of own as well as contributed and collected material (texts, photos, interviews, flyer, tickets, backstage passes etc). Though I planned to produce a book I soon realized that the variety of the accumulated material required different space and mediums. Following this approach I created seven different items that offer the viewer diverse aspects of a tour. After my diploma I self-published a limited edition of 300 copies (offset-print)and started to sell it on upcoming tours.
