Division of Pleasures / Vieceli & Cremers
Joy Division fans, pop culture fanatics, and music-loving designers, take note.
Forty years after the release of Unknown Pleasures, the band’s debut studio album, design studio Vieceli & Cremers presents Division of Pleasures. The album’s cover artwork was designed by artist Peter Saville, using a data plot of signals from a radio pulsar. Taking this image as its theme — one which has since triggered countless interpretations and reprocessings as a globally recognized pop-cultural trope — the book features 136 pages of recreations, installations, modifications, transformations, pre-digital memes, repetitions and differences, and differences in repetition.
