Comparing the cover images for Existential Funk and life.remixed, there is an intentional common thread between the two. Observe on the images.
This is a very minimal design element, but an intentional hint in both cases, as is the connection.
On the cover of Existential Funk, there was a “story” in the picture which drew from inspirations around cybernetic neural enhancement. life.remixed expanded on that slightly, suggesting a technological link with life beyond the extent of humanity.
Lately I had a thought: “what if the process for drawing this for any future designs could be done by the computer”. So, I wrote a program to do so. The results speak for themselves:
What is interesting about this, is that designing a program to draw a picture, even one as simple as this, is a sort of “mathematical proof” for the nature/machine connection that I tried to imply in the earlier graphic designs. Done by hand previously, I quickly realized “Gee, I wish I wrote this 12 years ago”.
