|Design||Oscar & Ewan; packaging development: Think Tank Media|
|Notes||Boxset = 7xCD | 6×10″ vinyl | 2xDVD | 4xbolts, wingnuts and more. My arms ache a little just thinking about this one, not an object to stub your toe on either. Humour aside, this is an impressive physical object. Tobin’s exploration of the natural world via his ISAM project (reprised here) is echoed in the flowerpress compression of the card-enclosed media. Only a shadow of imagery on the outside, Tobin’s impressive visuals are found on the DVDs. As far as I can tell, this collection doesn’t actually have a name, contributing a little further to the design’s sense of statuesque silence. It’s a true cornucopia for the Tobin fan, as NinjaTune describes it:
The video below is well worth watching to get a sense of the intent of this thing. It’s a limited edition available to purchase from the NinjaTune website.
