Album art for "APOPHENIA" by UNMET, a vaporwave artist.
The word apophenia describes the phenomenological experience of seeing patterns in noise. Using this concept as a starting point, I combined two digital tools which find patterns in noise: photogrammetry and the Content-Aware Fill tool in Photoshop. By using these tools incorrectly -- using noisy, low-quality images in the scans, and using the Content-Aware Fill tool as a form generator -- I created an image which seems to arise out of noise to produce the ghostly remainder of this broken statue of Aphrodite. This tool-breaking methodology is a feature of much of my work.
