The Avalanches'  Wildflower  album artwork reimagined for  Stephen Doyle  and  Gael Towey 's class - part of the SVA MFAD program. Wildflower's music features extensive sampling and projects the feel of a hyper-realistic urban environment. I chose to play with typographic signage that I documented and gathered from the streets of New York.
