Album Design

— As composed by John Cage.

This was an album cover series developed for John Cage's silent composition 4' 33". These designs visually communicate the idea of emptiness that is reflected in the music. Using white space in the center of the layout conveys a sense of absence. Photography of elements such as wind and water draw attention to an environment in which composed sound does not exist. The absence of a train in a station emphasizes the silence of the track.
