Liminal

Exivious

The band Exivious wanted to do something unique for the cover of their album, Liminal. We helped them develop an interactive environment called the "Liminal Universe Shaper." This was an online 3D environment which allowed users to interact with a series of nodes and connections in space online. The crowdfunding backers of this album could log on and and shape the universe to their liking - and would receive a custom poster of their creation that shipped with the album. 

However the system was designed so that, every users' work influenced the work of every other; and after all the pre-order customers had their input, the final result became the the final album cover. It was a piece of generative community artwork which illustrates transformation and change
