Déjà Vu: Driver Side Impact vs. Animal Collective

rotsnake.gifLast year, Animal Collective released Merriweather Post Pavilion with an album cover featuring an amazing image was created by Akiyoshi Kitaoka, a professor at the Department of Psychology of Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan. Kitaoka is known for creating visual illusions that appear to move. When staring at the cover for Merriweather Post Pavilion, the images appears to move in waves.

Until the release of the Animal Collective album, the most notable image created by Kitaoka was Rotating Snakes (right). It features a series of circular designs that appear to rotate.

Last month, a band called Driver Side Impact used Kitaoka's Rotating Snakes on the cover of their Double Vision EP. While the image certainly doesn't resemble the one on the Animal Collective cover in style, it was a déjà vu moment to see another Kitaoka image used as album art.
