Quintet of the Unseen, an exhibition of large scale video work by Bill Viola, featured extreme slow motion video of five people as they stand together and waves of emotion pass over them. Neutral expressions and posture slowly evolve as they individually react, contort and relax. In this very stripped down work Viola focusses on the experience of emotion and enlightenment and references devotional art - it was this simple but profound aspect of the work we wanted to pick up on. We created an identity with a font referencing in Roman stone carvings and a simple monumental setting, the card itself is cut to 16:9 ratio, the same as the video’s aspect ratio, and was blind embossed into stiff smooth marble card. A second after party card was created but embossing the same logotype in a black marble card and hand writing the details.
