New York artist Derrick Cruz recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for a piece of art he created as a tribute to Ian Curtis.  The sculpture*, Digital 18:05:80, is a minimalist cold cast porcelain block of Curtis' face and according to Cruz, was intended to "pay homage to the monolithic impact of the late Ian Curtis." The sculpture itself is complete, but Cruz needs financial backing for the casting and supplies. Take a look at the sculpture in the short video below:



The pledge goal for Digital 18:05:80 has been met, which means the project will be fully funded on March 2nd, but anyone interested in contributing can still take advantage of the pledge incentives here.  I'd recommend clicking over to check it out, if for no other reason than to read Cruz's commentary 'Buses, Malls, & Intercoms or How I Found Joy Division,' which tells the story of how Cruz discovered Joy Division and Unknown Pleasures after getting into New Order (first introduction to either band was through a random purchase of NO's Substance on vinyl.)  Those interested can check out Cruz's other designs/art by visiting his website.



*the sculpture's title, Digital 18:05:80, comes from the Joy Division song "Digital" and date of Curtis' death - May 18th, 1980.
