Upon meeting in 2012, Jondix and D’Andrea discovered a shared reverence for illustration, transcendental pattern, and esoteric spiritual thought. They decided at this meeting to explore the path of collaboration by sending work between Portland and Barcelona.

Using additive and subtractive methods to ink over and under each other’s lines, they conjured the spirit of the “Astral Mind”, a term describing the unknown and unpredictable artistic entity which emerges out of true collaboration.

TK / 1962
From The Structure of Scientific Revolutions

            Yet one standard product of the scientific enterprise is missing. Normal science does not aim at novelties of fact or theory and, when successful, finds none. New and unsuspected phenomena are, however, repeatedly uncovered by scientific research, and radical new theories have again and again been invented by scientists.
            The practice of normal science depends on the ability, acquired from exemplars, to group objects and situations into similarity sets which are primitive in the sense that the grouping is done without an answer to the question, “Similar with respect to what?” One central aspect of any revolution is, then, that some of the similarity relations change. Objects that were grouped in the same set before are grouped in different ones afterward and vice versa. Think of the sun, moon, Mars, and earth before and after Copernicus; of free fall, pendular, and planetary motion before and after Galileo; or of salts, alloys, and a sulpuhur-iron filing mix before and after Dalton.
