The Life Electronic
︎Client – Audio Obscura
︎Role – Art direction / graphic design / illustration
Album artwork for electronic musician Neil Stringfellow aka Audio Obscura on the Newcastle-based label TQN-aut.
This one evolved pretty much organically from thinking about the album title, nostalgically reminiscing about the word ‘electronic’. So a 70/80s vibe, lots of test equipment like oscilloscopes, old TVs, soldering irons and mysterious black boxes with loads of dials and crude displays.
So I put together some unused geometric illustrative experiments I did from my archive with a photograph of an old televison I found on Unsplash, courtesey of Deigo Gonzalez.
I also have to acknowledge the influences of both the video sculptues of Korean electronic artist Nam June Paik, and the Russian constructivist Naum Gabo, both of which I humbly bow to in deep respect.
