Seeking Connection

Kristinn Kerr Wilson

Looking into the past, we realize our existence in the present—a time where what we perceive as reality was once the distant future. Significant paintings can now be observed on our computer screens where we can zoom in on every brushstroke and craquelure until the paint turns into pixels. Similarly, both contemporary and historical music now coexists digitally on streaming platforms. Seeking Connection proposes a system of design for classical music, often neglected in the design context. It links a classical piece with its concurring art period as an indicator of the genre—Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Romantic eras. As modern music turns away from the physical album to the digital platform, the visual and tangible aspects of music are endangered. Seeking Connection visualizes the past by reframing the historical and offering it a place in the future through visual communication for music.
