Oudemian (album)

album cover, 

Comissioned by Mári Mákó

Mári contacted us to make an album cover for her debut album Oudemian. Since we worked together for her HOLD performance in 2018 at iii, we felt very confident continue our collaboration. She had only one request, that we incorporate her face in the cover. We wanted to challenge ourselves to make the entire cover in hyper-real 3D. We continued the same visual research that we developed for HOLD, keeping the main metaphor: rebirth and the phenomena of shedding skin what mostly snakes, lizards, scorpions, tarantulas do. We have created a 3D model of Mári’s head and a high definition human skin and snakeskin texture. The image is the moment when Mári is shedding her old ‘skin’ to come to light anew.

The album is released on Spotify the 28th of May. The LP will be released in September 2021.
