I aimed to create a sensory experience by combining music with a booklet of curated images. I selected an image (often an art piece) that I felt matched the mood of each song . I then added facts about the image and/or the respective song to the coordinating page so that the sensory experience could even become an informative one.
I named the project “Evocative. Movement.”. “Evocative” since both the paired song and image are meant to evoke a common mood. And “Movement” because many of the songs explicitly describe movement in the lyrics.
This is definitely the most elaborate mixtape cover booklet I’ve ever attempted to make.
The Booklet insert: map to reading the booklet.
Mindmapping is a common practice of mine that always leads to interesting discoveries. I generally mind map to thoroughly explore a topic or figure out the root of an issue. I found that many topics that recur in my mind have a common theme; they are embedded in my idea of “the mysterious”. Here is my mind map that hashes out some of these ideas and my found connections between them.
I came up with the idea to digitally draw my favorite swimsuits of the season on top of Art History Nude masterpieces. Who better to model them than goddesses from history.
