This piece is based on the eponymous vector-based digital drawing from the artist's Metagraph series. The composition is inspired by a diverse range of sources including old-school Bronx subway graffiti and Aboriginal Australian petroglyphs. "Mesmertron" was originally drawn in Illustrator in 2003 and reborn as an NFT 18 years later. The original soundscape contains samples from NASA's Discovery program missions.
