My CD will be for a contemporary classical, or electronic ambient artist, and the design will be based around the meaning of the name "Lethologica" -a condition of not being able to remember the words or phrases you need in conversation. This condition to me signifies that often we cannot control our brains or our selves as much as we want to. The unconscious has a huge influence as does our environment. Information overload could also perhaps contribute to this condition. According to Wikipedia, the condition was first talked about by Carl Jung in Wandlungen und Symbole der Libido (The Psychology of the Unconscious). Originally my design was going to be based around Brain Scans and Neurons firing and typography spilling out, but then I realised the brief required non copyright images. The new design is based on some college artwork from the debris of daily life which is quite surrealist in nature to fit in with the Album title, "Wandlungen und Symbole der Libido"
