Mårten Lange and Daniel Everett: Vantage Point
Established in 2015, Actual Source is an American publisher, brand, and book store that collaborates with contemporary artists and designers, to release limited edition books, fonts, clothing, and objects.
Selected Actual Source publications are held in the library collection of the Museum of Modern Art (NY) and at the Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library at Yale University.
Vantage Point is a collaborative publication between American artist Daniel Everett and Swedish artist Mårten Lange.
The project started as a conversation in 2016 at an exhibition for Daniel’s book “Throughout the Universe in Perpetuity” (Études, 2015) during the ‘One Thousand Books’ Art Book Festival at the Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen. Mårten was in attendance and instantly recognized one of Daniel’s images. It turned out that he had taken the exact same image from the exact same place/vantage point that Daniel had, just a short time apart in Tokyo. This amazing coincidence prompted the two to begin working together to compile more images from their individual trips to Japan to be shown together in a book. In 2020 FOAM published an excerpt from the project in issue #56 and this book is the full compilation of images.
