When You Are Gone

My project focuses on records. It is partly about examining whether one can make the physical form of a record into a necessity, and partly about playing with a medium that is accused of being old-fashioned.

During the degree exhibition, together with the recording company Funk Noir, I will be issuing a single involving the electropop act Jacques C. The song, When You Are Gone, is being released as a music video, and the video and the record sleeve will together create a little relational drama between humans and machines.

Together with photographers, film-makers and costumiers I have created a story that starts in one medium and then shifts to another. A little discussion between the different worlds of graphic design.
