Perfect Symmetry

Continuing the theme of music collaborating with art...

To create the cover and sleeve art for Keane's album, Perfect Symmetry, artist Osang Gwon took approximately 1000-3000 pictures of each band member and used the resulting photographs to collage lifesize versions of them. And according to the art director, the triangle imagery on the front cover was based upon 1920's Bauhaus modernism, which the band was supposedly influenced by while recording in Berlin. Read the whole article and interview with Osang Gwon here, its pretty fascinating.
