Charles Harrison produced an album that was initially inspired by the use of a digital synthesiser within Logic Pro X called: Alchemy. It started as a play on words with a track named Alchemedes. Eventually a whole album followed based on the life and work of Archimedes. I was approached to create an album cover that reflected this merging of ideas.
Though there were many principles of physics and mathematics that emerged throughout Archimedes life (and I tried to hide as many as I could within the image), the main one for us to focus on was his principle of Displacement: the first track on the album, originally named Alchemedes, his 'Eureka' moment. And while I also researched the principles of Alchemy, and hid a few references to those also, there is one well known one that shouldn't need any explanation at all.
