The Pineapple Thief

Kscope released Dissolution, the new album by Pineapple Thief on 31st August. Stylorouge created the artwork for the title, which is available in various formats including a 48 page hardback ‘earbook’. (Shown here is the design for the original boxed earbook package)
The theme of the album follows the trials and tribulations of living in a society where everything is played out on a public stage and the often dark consequences this way of living brings. The social network exposes personal, intimate and often boring details of our lives to a judgemental online audience, and this is at the heart of this project. It inspired our use of glitching to dissemble the photographs we took for the packaging. Two young actors acted improvised scenes for the camera during a one-day studio shoot; there was warmth, mistrust, anger, profanity, aggression… and real tears.
