Description
This is a series of drawings I made for Cape Town based band Bateleur's 2012 EP Cargo Cults. They commissioned five artists to each produce album art for four unique limited edition LP sized 'vinyls' made from indigenous South African wood (by product designer Max Basler). Each of the 'vinyls' house a flash disk in a groove in the reverse side with the music on, as well as the music remixed by five local DJs. The name of the EP, Cargo Cults, is a reference to the religious practices found in many tribal societies (especially in New Guinea and other Pacific Islands) where, in the wake of exposure to new technologies via members of post-Industrialised cultures, the tribes develop ceremony and ritual mimicking the more technologically advanced cultures as well as sometimes regarding members of these cultures as deities.
