Severed Mercies is a personal project where I developed a creative platform that functions as a music label to release my own work under a myriad of aliases as well as various collaborations. The artwork across all releases emphasizes physicality and form where functional data is put on the same plane as conceptual imagery to create cohesive compositions and an overall unified aesthetic. Using a limited set of tools, the packaging for each release is created by hand with a desire to re-contextualize the boundaries and expectations for what’s possible with limited tools.
