Gyroscopic Horizons documents the work and ideas of Neil Denari prior to NMDA. Produced under the office name COR_TEX, this work spans a time period in which he transitioned from hyper detailed machine architecture drawn by hand to more fluid, post-mechanical paradigm forms enacted through computation and digital rendering.
The front third of the book consists of a series of essays and meditations on contemporary culture that lay out the territory in which Neil Denari works. Investigations into color, materials, displacement, technology, nature, graphic identity, navigation systems, and Zen Gardens are some of the myriad topics Denari takes on.
