Conundrum

This was the cover to my solo LP of music in the 1987 release under Dossier records. It was also released with a 30 minute video under the Provision label.

The LP cover shows two tower blocks collapsing. The process to make the image which would take a few minutes today was long and lengthy. First I took a 35 mm black and white image and processed the film. Then the image was printed in the dark room on paper. Then that photo was scanned into a BBC micro. I took that scan to a French system of what was something like a Quantel Paintbox and colorized the image. The image was then on the video screen so I took a colour photo of it and got that developed and that was the image used for the cover in 1987.
