ViewMaster is not just a album and a book, it is a performance — a personal slide-show for your eyes and ears only. When performed Ryan Van Winkle and sound artist Dan Gorman guide you through a playful, surreal, journey to a distant land. It is an immersive piece aided by the set-design of Faith Eliott and, of course, our trusty vintage View-master. Buy the album, chapbook, and experience our live shows at the Southbank Center in London.
