Album cover artwork for Efterklang’s album Altid Sammen released 2019 on 4AD. For this project we decided to work with computer generated imagery and 3D for the first time, and teamed up with SEEN CGI in order to create this other-worldly space.
In listening to the music we experienced that it awakened contrasting feelings of solitude alongside a sense of unity, paired with something innately human, but extracted from its original environment – almost like a remnant of intimacy found at a much later time: perhaps in a space colony in a far away future, or even in a different dimension. This was a complex feeling to translate visually, but we felt we came close with this entirely imagined environment. It combines strong references to very different periods in architecture, emphasising a feeling of timelessness in an almost unearthly setting.
The whole space, including all its surfaces and patterns, e.g. the relief wall tiles, the marble floor, the curtain etc., were designed by us, and brought to life with the incredible 3D skills of SEEN CGI.
