Chicago-based publishers, printers, artists, and musicians, Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi have worked across numerous media in their evolving decade-long collaboration known as SONNENZIMMER.

While exploring the physical and conceptual friction between abstraction and communication, they examine how our humanity is being defined by the substrate of media.
