This is a album cover for a digital album. The function of a cover has changed since the start of digital music, the cover used to protect the physical record but now it only serves as a piece of art. The cover doesn't have to be a 30 by 30 cm square but it can also be something different, a sculpture, object, or installation.
I designed this showcase as a cover for a album by TANK86. TANK86 is a instrumental metal band, 'expect buildings to collapse' is a sentence I found on their website and I took this sentence to design this showcase. The showcase is equipped with a sound system that loops over their album. Their is only one knob, the volume control. It's not possible to change songs nor to stop the record. Due to the vibrations generated by the speakers everything that is displayed on the showcase will break. It's a self destruction showcase, much like a vinyl record destroys itself over time.
