Eriko Kawakami: On the cover artwork for the 2019 Design in Tech Report

The final cover of the Design in Tech Report 2019 is my reinterpretation of Rubinโ€™s Vase. In my version, the image has contrasts not only in the illusion of the picture, but also in the texture and line; that of the hand-drawn and the linear flat line. Itโ€™s about the ambiguity of seeing, but also about turning the familiar into something unfamiliar, or new.
