Peep Mag #2: Lady and the Tiger

Masami Akita of Merzbow Music in Japan sent me many remarkable, lush collage works. This is a detail from one. In an interview with Oskari Mertalo, Masami Akita has said, "I named my project (Merzbow Music) after a great work by the German collage artist Kurt Schwitters which he called The Cathedral of Erotic Misery . He made art from oddments he picked up on the street...Probably the greatest idea of Surrealism for me is Everything is Erotic. Everywhere Erotic."
