Digital billboard (for the artist)
Digital billboards throughout NYC will have a photo of an artist with a variety of color and patterns radiating from them. The main screen will illustrate the mood of the song/album while the second screen will have the feelings of the song/album.
I posted a survey with questions such as, “What colors/shapes/patterns do you associate with the album Manic by Halsey?” and “What emotions do you associate with the song Adore You by Harry Styles?” Videos below will show some of the responses I received.
