The Creation of a Visual Language, with ESPO and Online Ceramics
“The dancing bears, the steal your face logo, they're probably known on Mars at this point,” says artist ESPO. In this episode, we’re asking why these images have such staying power, and Emmett talks to LA streetwear label Online Ceramics, who’s Dead-inspired tee shirts have introduced a whole new generation to the psychedelic era. Once you speak the Dead’s visual language, you’ll see it everywhere.
America’s Dead is produced by work by work: Scott Newman, Jemma Brown, Kathleen Ottinger, Alex Kapelman, and Ben Montoya. Additional production from Josh Agajanian. The show is mixed by Sam Bair and Josh Hahn. Our theme music is by Jake Longstreth, John Nixon, Aaron Olson, and Ryan Adlaf of Mountain Brews and Richard Pictures. The show art is created by Andy J. Pizza. Special thanks to Joe Dawson at Sonos.
