Limited edition of 100 and 25
Secret World Live is one of a collection of limited edition archival inkjet prints published to celebrate a catalogue of truly remarkable and unique soundworks by Peter Gabriel. The album cover was designed to evoke the portion of the Secret World live show in which Peter would hold the telephone receiver aloft, and arose partly out of Peter's interest in the way sound waves create patterns; the themes of the Secret World tour were communication and relationships. Danny Jenkins told Hypergallery "I have always been interested in making images and had amassed an extensive collection of 80s office detritus for my digital montages. The core photograph of the album was shot in my studio back yard with my Pentax K1000 camera and the receiver was randomly picked from a pile of phones and the hand actually belongs to my long-suffering studio assistant Becky Jemmett. It was pure luck and chance that the phone and hand were a convincing enough match for Peter's on-stage version." Secret World Live comprises two editions: a smaller print (the edition of 100) and a larger print (the edition of 25). Every print in this collection has been signed by Peter Gabriel himself.
