Claire’s Looking Outward post on Flume’s “Skin” album cover caught my eye as I was scrolling through her page. In my opinion, Zawada did an excellent job in successfully representing this relationship between the music and the album cover art for “Skins”. The contrast between organic and synthetic is directly shown through Zawada’s use of soft and hard textures alongside the soft and vibrant colors that emphasize these textures. I agree with Claire when she says that Zawada’s use of mathematical programming to create organic objects is ironic. I feel that Zawada was able to show the potential and complexity of computer programming by recreating a natural object that looks so realistic.
