Digital artist Chris Slabber is best known for his award-winning designs of the “Haezer album cover” and “Destruction/Creation,” the latter an ink-dropped-into-water art series that was inspired by the works of Alberto Seveso. Using the same visual style in “Doppelganger,” his newest project capitalizes on the dualities of past and future, hero and coward… “The idea was to take one cloud of pigment and to give it two personalities by flipping it 180,” he says. “All of us have at some point been confronted with ourselves. A self from the past, the future or even as we are now. The question is, would you recognise you[rself]?” Good question! And so this requires some reflection and time-traveling like in the movie “Predestination” to really figure out how we will handle our other selves.
