'Call of the Void' Smiley Screenprint - SORBET YELLOW
Titled ‘Call of the Void’, that strange feeling or thought of jumping from a ledge, but not doing it, just having that urge or feeling of 'what if'.
The 'flyer' design scene from the late 80's to early 90's consisted of designs that took influence from many areas, from surrealist artists to science journal illustrations. Embracing a distinctive futuristic but lo -fi design aesthetic of the time. From the birth of acid house and the free party scene, through to the era of super clubs and into the digital age, flyer design has always been an integral part of rave culture.
The Smiley face design has travelled far from its early 1960s origins, changing like a constantly mutating virus: from early 70's fad to late 80's acid house culture, from millennial txt option to serial killer signature and ubiquitous emoticon.
