Unknown Pleasures

A glitch makeover of the iconic Joy Division album cover.

“Unknown Pleasures” (2018)

The image was originally created by radio astronomer Harold Craft at the Arecibo Observatory for his 1970 PhD thesis.

[…] based on an image of radio waves from pulsar CP 1919, from The Cambridge Encyclopaedia of Astronomy.

[…] In April 2017, the term “joyplot” was coined as a series of statistical data graphed in such a way that they resemble the album cover artwork
