Further documents and presents the symbiotic relationship between seven artists and friends who share a visual dialogue: MARS-1, NoMe Edonna, Oliver Vernon, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Damon Soule, David Choong Lee, and Robert Hardgrave.

The dialogue between artists influences their individual styles and explores the theory of a collective unconscious — a feedback loop of ideas that move freely, mutating over time and taking shape as visual thoughts. Ultimately these expressions make their way through each individual artist’s lens and filter.

Full of vibrant color and unique organic shapes that explode off the page, the work is a natural progression from earlier titles that showcased the work of some of the artists featured in Further, such as the book Convergence. Works inspired by surrealism and directly drawing from Salvador Dalí and other artists of the past interact and coexist with works looking to the future, featuring robots and cyber-infrastructures. The title succeeds at engaging the viewer and expanding his or her unconscious.

As featured artist NoMe Edonna describes, “The electricity created between a timeless work of art and the viewer cannot be created with logic or some long-thought out rationality. Art is spiritual and lives in a world of magic, where words can only fall short.” Dalí and other artists of the past interact and coexist with works looking to the future, featuring robots and cyber-infrastructures. The title succeeds at engaging the viewer and expanding his or her unconscious.
