1980's Dumbar chaotic aesthetic

Studio Dumbar combined (believe it or not) De Stijl formalism, and new 1980s- 1990s visual effects produced photographically and digitally.



There is no particular logic, except the principle of graphic surprise. The chaotic-orderly provides enough abstractiion for a viewer intent of getting the information while suggesting an innovative aesthetic.
