About

SONNENZIMMER is the collaborative practice of artists Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi. Their work investigates and CHALLENGES the preconceived notions of the graphic arts. Their experimental studio was established in 2006 in Chicago. Together, they explore the PHYSICAL and PSYCHO-PHYSICAL nature of VISUALIZATION through image-making, sculpture, writing, publishing, exhibitions, design, music, and performance. While they move through an array of media, their focus is on triangulating a deeper understanding of graphic expression at large.  

A sum of experience with no paradoxes.

Clogged not blocked. Like grain.

Material, not meshing or adhering.
