1992. Early (4-color!) digital poster by Chris Wayan
A poster playing with superimposed messsages--with how the mind sorts out different layers. The parallel with dream-interpretation is obvious I suppose.
It started as a parody of the US flag, all red white and blue stripes on the blackness of space--on Nature's silence, under all our busy signals.
It's not superimposed at all. This was the digital stone age. The image has just four colors--each pixel's red white blue or black. So I tried Seurat's trick of visual mixing, to see if your mind alone would create pinks and purples, construct the superimposed shapes by (literally) connecting the dots. As you do in dreams--and, though we don't like to admit it, when awake. Just another ambiguous layering we filter as we choose.
