Fernanda Takai – On the Brink of the Impossible

Back Download

The album “On the Brink of the Impossible” by Brazilian singer Fernanda Takai features a cover design with a Japanese appearance. Starting from the idea of an unconventional blend, the fantasy tale of a geisha who wanted to become a heroine was placed centre stage here. Inspired by Japanese art, the design reinterpreted a photograph from 1885 by Kusakabe Kimbei showing a geisha standing with a small umbrella in the middle of a storm. Various techniques, including collages, photographs, prints and origami, were used to position the singer as a contemporary geisha amid surreal scenery.
