THE VALIDATION JUNKY



Large-format illustrations exploring potential connections between cognition, and computation of the tacit psychological elements that are components to the semiotics of appeal and attraction, validation and status within new media.

Drawn through iterative processes in dialogue with trend forecasters, software designers, and fashion designers, brain-body-society is a manifesto drawing imagining a slice through contempoary human anatomy, deeply interconnected with new media systems. The illustration imagines potential connections between the way the human brain perceives beauty, its connection with sexual attraction systems, and the reelease of serotnin and dopamine according to visual perception of mathematics, proportions, signals and semiotics.

Keywords - Artificial Intelligence, Cognition, Consumer Psychology, Cybernetics, Mathematics & Proportions, Ontologies, Perception, Trend Forecasting
