Inspired by the sensuality of Björk’s song and video “Cocoon”, this trio of CD and DVD package designs was created under the direction of EikoIshioka, who directed the “Cocoon” music video. In the video, Björk gradually becomes encased in a cocoon of red threads spun from her own nipples. We selected evocative stills from the video, digitally enhanced them, and added customized typography.
Originally, Björk and her record company intended to select one cover design. But in the end, they broke new ground by producing 3 of the proposed designs for the different remixes of the “Cocoon” single. The collection works as a series and individually, and is an intriguing example of Björk’s image as a groundbreaking, avant-garde artist.
