Mike Gordon has teamed with his mother, artist Marjorie Minkin, to create 50 limited edition Inside In CDs. The CDs come inside plastic boxes that are wall-mountable, and are adorned with small one-of-a-kind paintings that have been signed and numbered by Marjorie Minkin. The CDs themselves are also signed by Mike. Essentially, these are fine-art pieces that also hold a copy of Inside In. Here to provide some more background, is Mike Gordon. Mike?
"Hello, Mike here...Some of you may know my Mother's work from the various backdrops she did for Phish, or from the song, "Minkin", on the band's early self-released album. She has always been a huge influence on me -- my biggest, in fact. She repeatedly demonstrates what it means to stretch artistic limits as far as possible. And for over a decade she and I have been talking about doing some sort of collaboration that mixes painting (her work is done with iridescent pigments on transparent plastic) and sound. Now "Inside In" is becoming the perfect opportunity for us to combine efforts. Our long term goal is to create a gallery installation, but we also wanted to create simpler pieces that people could handle and have for themselves."
The units sell for 101 dollars and 101 cents, for a total of $102.01 and will be shipped out directly from the Minkin studio. To learn more about the artist, please visit her web site at (http://www.marjorieminkin.com).
