Around the time we recorded our new album, Flashing Lights, I was teaching some classes on Gestalt psychology. I got thinking about the nature of patterns and how we often form meaningful relationships of patterns or sequence out of unrelated visual stimuli. I then painted random coloured dots on about 300 pieces of paper. Fellow band member Richie then randomised the presentation of these images and made them glow and flash. As I watch the video, it’s cool to see these patterns emerge from this combination of random elements.
