Graphic Surgery have created the artwork for Mike Dehnert’s new release on Delsin. Using an image of a steel fence designed by the studio, the artwork offers a visual play on the title of the LP – ‘Lichtbedingt’.
Working with Mike Dehnert, Amsterdam design studio Graphic Surgery – who have featured in previous Delsin releases as well – responded to the artist’s request for ‘eye-catching artwork’. The image itself is a photo of a steel fence the studio had previously designed for a building in Amsterdam’s historic, industrial harbour area NDSM. The front and back of the record together form a whole photo.
“His album is titled “Lichtbedingt”, which means something like “depends on the light,” the studio explain. “The fence is made out of perforated steel; the light shining through plays an important role in the design. In this photo the fence is opened so you can see double layers. This creates nice moire effects and gives the whole image an extra tactile and physical feel to it.”
“You could almost say the fence was meant to be featured on a techno record.”
