Joe Cunningham is a Minneapolis-based artist. His mediums are analog and digital photography, analog collage, and sonic experimentation. Formerly a web site designer, Joe gradually transitioned to art over the course of six years before making it his sole focus in 2009 with the founding of Roosterhouse Ideas
, a venture born out of collaboration with Karl Noyes
, another Minneapolis artist. During the preceeding transitional years, Joe was primarily a street photographer who covered various local music scenes and other subcultures; photoblogging on and off since 2003.
As a part of the Roosterhouse collective, Joe contributes collage works
and psychedelic photographs
from an iPhone 1 with a curiously damaged imager. His 228 Label grafitti sticker collages are available in an ongoing series of zines available through zineia.com
Sonic experiments are a more recent development. This began with an ongoing series of punk rock podcasts and spilled over into the creation of soundscapes, drone music, and mind movies for the blind.
