The next four chapters derive the new design from the original lettering of the covers.
In this chapter, if you look closely, you can see individual details of the letters. Only two colors were used for each cover, which were also derived from the original.
In this chapter, the lettering of the originals was further abstracted and all details were removed. Only outlines are still visible. The colors were again derived from the original cover.
Chapters 3.0 & 3.1 symbolize the way to the further abstraction in chapter 4.
Through the uniform choice of colors, the records become a visual compound.
The forms become more abstract. Hardly recognizable, but still the basis for the visual language, is still the original lettering. Here you can see outlines which are staggered to create a rhythm.
Detached from the writing, this chapter deals with the color combinations of the record covers.
Edges of the record show discoloration on the exterior of older covers. The circles in the center represent this effect in abstract form in the following designs.
What you see in these designs is simply music. The shapes are visually translated sound waves, created by colored water on a speaker.
With the Artivive app you can bring the following covers to life.
Simply download the app on your smartphone or tablet, open it and hold it on the cover.
The corners & edges of a cover, marked by time, tell the story of a record. Here, exactly these traces are brought into focus.
The originals under the microscope.
The now recognizable pixels follow a strict grid, but form a feeling of blurriness. Acoustically, it could be interpreted as noise.
