Secret 7” & Squarespace wants us to speak our minds through type for a good cause
A collaboration between DIA Studio and Zach Lieberman, Speak Your Mind is a web-based generative expressive type application that allows users to create their own unique posters to be printed and displayed at the exhibition. For this year Secret 7’’set a goal. “To raise as much money and awareness as we possibly can for Mind, the mental health charity. For us, communicating how you’re feeling is really key to a maintaining a positive mental health, so we’re excited to announce a unique collaboration with Squarespace called Speak Your Mind. It is a interactive website experience that allows you to express your feelings through art, inspired by seven emotions featured in our tracks.Create an original work, then share it with the world. For every social share Squarespace will donate £1 to Mind and you’ll be helping further drive awareness of the charity”.
Last but not least Secret 7", the exhibition which brings together musicians and artists for a good cause is open until the 23rd of June at The Jetty in Greenwich Peninsula’s Summer Hub.
“Secret 7” takes 7 tracks from 7 of the best-known musicians around and presses each one 100 times to 7” vinyl. We then invite creatives from around the world to interpret the tracks in their own style for every 7”. 700 unique sleeves are exhibited before going on sale on a first come, first served basis priced at £50 each. You don’t know who created the sleeve, or even which song it’s for, until you have parted with your cash - the secret lies within. Since 2012 we have produced 3,500 one-of-a-kind records for 35 different tracks. We’ve sold every single one and raised over £175,000 for great causes”.
