Homer Flynn

For nearly 40 years, HOMER FLYNN has been involved with the murky aesthetics of San Francisco’s music, performance, and video group, The Residents. As their chief visual designer and co-owner of The Cryptic Corporation, The Residents’s business and public relations interface, Flynn has been involved in nearly all of the group’s improbable projects since the mid-1970s. Currently, he lives in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco with his charming wife, Leigh Barbier.

The Artist’s Hands

As the primary designer for The Residents over the past 40-plus years, I have seen my tools evolve in many ways, but the primary change, as for many artists, has been from analog to digital. Regardless, I still think the tools to which I’m most attached, both literally and figuratively, are my hands, and the ways that I use those tools have changed dramatically.
