Hi everyone. Thought you might enjoy a sneaky look at the cover art for Perfect Symmetry. The basic pattern is a combination of ideas – namely the decidedly imperfect symmetry that’s one of the main themes of the album, and the design concepts of the Bauhaus movement that we fell in love with while we were recording in Berlin. Looking through the gaps in the pattern you can see glimpses of sculptures of us specially made by the brilliant Korean artist Osang Gwon.
These sculptures are truly incredible works of art, and you’ll be seeing a lot more of them in the next few months. We’ll also be telling the story of how they were created – it’s quite a process, quite an experience in fact. They’re life-size (a bit bigger actually), spooky, stunning, hyperreal and funny all at the same time. The man is a genius.
