Bird, Mouse and Sausage

In richly drawn multimedia, Jeremy Holmes retold the Brothers Grimm story of three companions (a bird, a mouse, and a sausage) who reassign their household chores. The CD, in a slipcase resembling a well-worn album, animates woodcut-style, antique-feeling illustrations, as if an old book had been brought to life on one of Thomas Edison’s Kinetoscopes. “It’s nice that it created its own world,” Carlos said of the project. Maeda was reminded of early French digital media CDs, as well as the work of Tim Burton.—Print Magazine 2005
