Space Oddity


Space Oddity


It is an music poster design about the song Space Oddity by David Bowie.

The song Space Oddity by David Bowie, in my interpretation, is a story about an astronaut who has lost contact with ground control and will be floating in the universe forever alone. I use gray and light blue to show the isolation and solitude. Besides, I repeated the lyrics over and over again to represent the endless shout in silence deep inside the astronaut’s space capsule.  I use a projector as a light source, combing with the features of the plastic film and water, and other materials to create a poster. In the experiment, I mix a variety of materials and put them in a serval angle and position to create light effects.


During the process, I also use the paper that has a strong light reflection because of the strong character of the singer, David Bowie, but finally, I decided to create the poster according to my own thoughts.
