Adding a tridimensional layer to the intrinsic dual polarity of the record, italian audio/visual artist Lorem takes the archaic sound of the original tracks and morphs it into something alien and ambiguous, providing two neural network reworks and a stunning AI-generated short-movie. While the voice is disembodied in a time-streched ghost, the drumbeat is transfigured in an electronically deconstructed pulse. In a kind of Twin Peaksian fairy tale, the video serves as a narrative counterpart to the sound and brings the viewer in a strange encounter with a magical giant, a shapeshifting entity capable of altering the course of nature. The boundaries between subject and object are dissolved, while reality unveils itself as a contradictory dream impressed on a malfunctioning video-tape.
Born as a collaboration between experimental illustrator/tattoo artist Primitivo and graphic designer Nicola Tirabasso, the artwork aims to reflect on a different level the paradoxical nature of the release. A multi-layered take on the shadow-zones of a dual signification system, in which the meeting of hand-drawn asemic motifs and AI-generated images, analog and digital techniques, blurs, while questioning, the alleged separation between “natural” and “artificial”.
