Bjork: Volta LP
Bjork's seventh album, released in 2007 radiates her classic themes involving unity. Her humanitarian philosophies speak loudly in a colorful fashion. Creating an installation piece felt appropriate for this LP.
Thread is a medium chosen for its interactive element, catering to the motif of unification. It also plays on the sensation of touch; experiencing mindfulness. Maintaining a clean design with negative space is important to maintain the textures and colors as the main focus.
The 12 inch vinyl cover was created with wood, paint, nails and thread to create the typography. For the 7 inch vinyl cover I also used thread, gluing it on to wood creating an organic rhythm within the lettering.
