Deru presents 'The Observe Box', a limited-edition LED projector and audio-visual time capsule

LA-based producer and composer Deru (aka the Emmy-Award winning Benjamin Wynn) has just announced the upcoming release of 1979a concept album featuring nine new songs and short films, housed in The Observe Box, a collectable wooden handheld LED projector.

The beautiful LED projector is a sculptural object and modern day “time-capsule”, reflecting the timeless act of reconstructing documented memories. The project is inspired by a mysterious box containing letters and films the artist found at a flea market.

A limited edition run of the physical LED projectors will be produced and is available to pre-order now, but the 1979 experience will be publicly available through an interactive web video player that has been created in collaboration with director Anthony Cinnamea from 17 June 2014.

The 1979 website hosts a collection of letters, objects and cultural ephemera, all relating back to the theme of 1979. The site will host nine short films from Ciannamea that run in conjunction with the films Deru found in his cryptic flea market box as well as a gallery of user-submitted photographic “memories,” including submissions from the likes of Nigel Godrich, How To Dress Well and The Gaslamp Killer.
