Package design for Pink Skull’s Psychic Welfare LP. Quite a few people were involved in this. A series of analog visuals were generated through video feedback manipulations by the band which were then arranged by graphic designer Chris Luxton. We assembled/designed the final packaging as a jacket/foldout poster. In doing so, we were compelled to incorporate a poem by the artist/poet Ira Cohen. NY Arts magazine in 2008 called his life “a sort of white magic produced by an alchemist who turned his back on the establishment in order to find God, art and poetry.” Unfortunately, the day before the record label was scheduled to meet Mr. Cohen to discuss creating an original piece of text, he passed. With much respect we reproduced his poem “Blind Assemblage” quickly, by hand, with sumi ink.
