The design balances irreverence with manifesto-like intentionality. Images are excised, expanded, and exported; they are then shrunk, stretched, and (re)set. Text is indexed, reappropriated, and recontextualized. These elements were used to create a visual tone retro-prospective and inherently at odds with itself. Systems created would ultimately be disrupted in one form or another — nothing would be as it was.
