    Studio Output: Exstatica for BBC Concert Orchestra

Check out Studio Output's considered posters for the BBC Concert Orchestra

Posted by Rob Alderson,

When an organisation like the BBC Concert Orchestra puts on unusual and unexpected events, it is only right the visual collateral supports their laudable commitment to changing perceptions that still weigh down classical music. Last year the orchestra took on two concerts designed to explore extreme emotional states and the excellent Studio Output did not disappoint with their supporting print work.

For Exstatica, Output’s team used images of fragments of body parts and overlaid it with type to create intriguing abstract pieces, the meanings of which could be discovered using decoding glasses. For H7teria, an event which explored themes of mental illness, reality and anxiety, they created a colourful optical illusion which is not only hugely memorable but also toys with viewers’ minds to create a sense of unease and uncertainty, acting as kind of Rorschach test onto which we can project some of our own issues. It also works well cross both print and online so the effect is not lost for those interacting with the work digitially.

This is one of a host of interesting updates on the Studio Output site well worth checking out when you have a chance.
