The musician's inspiration for the record was the Hindu cosmological metaphor or "Indra's Net," which uses the imagery of water-droplets on a spider's web as a way of visualizing the interconnectedness of human consciousness, etc.
In this album art, Indra's Net interacts with the external weather of being, etc.
There is a sort of warped vitality to the record; indications and leads that turn around on you while you listen. Impossible multivalent passageways emerge, threaded with suggestion.
I brought my interpretation of the music to life by rendering febrile platforms that seemed like appropriate perches from which to listen to this very dynamic record.
This is the document of the emergence of a new identity. A result of frustration, growth under pressure, and excessive intake of art-form. Imitate whirls aggressively, swallowing everything in the process of becoming itself.
The choices made in this art direction are the result of collision-- tectonic digitalizations and considerations.
