Grimes: Miss Information, a Coloring Book
Grimes’ first art publication is rooted in the DIY production and audience participation central to her work. The form of the coloring book is necessarily incomplete, and invites collaboration in much the same vein as the artist’s recent Grimes Art Kit, a collective project that allowed fans to create and share music videos using official footage of the artist and open-source digital assets.
Here, users can modify and activate the artist’s work using their own tools, whether oil paints or crayons. The book features more than 16 original digital drawings, perforated tear-out pages and an AI-generated poem. Like most coloring books, it is a project for artists of all ages: in the course of creating the publication, the artist, herself a new mother, learned about infants’ nascent visual perception and their preference for bold monochromatic images, and invites fellow parents to use the artworks as objects in an eye-tracking game.
