Everyone has a specific favorite album. There's something about seeing a vinyl in your hands that brings back specific memories, emotions, and lyrics. Music is personal to everyone. Stephen Wilson took this category even more personal by reminiscing where his career started, in a rock band based out of NJ in the 80s. Who knew that many years later, he would be embracing the subject of music within his new artwork.



This collection took the longest to even start! There was so much to consider. Every album has it's own design. Some album covers featured iconic images (Abbey Road by The Beatles), some feature iconic artists (designs by Andy Warhol), and others were labeled as controversial at the time (Nevermind by Nirvana). The Albums are a series within Modularity that explores the element of music through thread, embroidery, and textiles. Music unites and transcends. Fusing album covers with sketching, embroidery, laser cutting, and 3D printing, music has now blended with art, craft, and objects.
