It’s been a long time coming. I’m super stoked to officially announce the Quantropi x EEPMON digital art murals! Before we unveil, I thought it would be interesting to show the behind-the-scenes leading up to the installation itself. Please do follow along and get to know a bit of my creation process from start to finish. It typically goes like this…
Start! > Analysis > Design > Production > Installation > Finish!
In this blog post, I will very briefly go over the analysis and design phases.
About the Proposed Mural – the Quantropi team wanted art murals to capture and artistically convey their mission – Providing true quantum safety you can count on today, and Perfect Secrecy you can trust forever, no matter what the future network, or cybersecurity threat – and not to mention, to inspire and grace their walls with EEPMON art!
I felt that the first and best step to approach this was to interview every employee in the company. Not only was it a good way to warm up the creative gears, it was also a nice way to get to know the team too – what are the things in life they are passionate about, that are inspiring and motivational? And of course, I wanted to know what quantum means to them!
Having listened to each team member’s story, I was able to cue in on certain words, phrases and weave commonalities into a holistic mind map diagram pictured above. Of course, I threw in some of my thoughts on quantum mechanics and cybersecurity as well. ANYTHING that popped into my head ended up on paper.
With the mind map established, I then intuitively identified parts I felt would be great for the mural. I began to visualize in my mind geometries, sounds, and continuous layered fluctuations of graphical abstractions. This work I believe had to convey a constant state of osmosis where forms can emerge and yet can easily diverge. Vector graphics is my go-to format for digital art. You can scale your artwork as big as you want without any degradation of quality whatsoever which is great for working on large murals.
Additionally, I wanted to include portraits of some of the world’s most notable contributors to quantum mechanics such as Albert Einstein, Évariste Galois and Roy J. Glauber. Here’s is a snippet of digital artwork murals combining portraits I proposed.
I am extremely happy to say that the response from Quantropi was a resounding yes! On my next post I’ll be walking you through my production and installation phases.
Thank you all for reading this far. Bring it On!
