axxon N.'s third and final effort Machines! Machines! MACHINES! (or the Rapid Replacement of Our Dying Breed) (commonly referred to as simply MACHINES!) contains artwork that radically deviates from Andrew and Daniel's previous artistic style and vision. Instead of organic hand drawings from Daniel, the pair decided on a photographic approach for this album. The plan for the artwork was to photograph extremely modern settings on extremely old film, sort of a reverse Public Enemies effect (though the duo thought of this idea before they even heard of the Michael Mann film). Daniel purchased an old camera and took all of the photographs seen throughout the album. Absolutely none of the photos are photoshopped in any way with the exception of cropping, so all of the photos seen (except for the tray picture) were entirely unadulterated by computers. Two pictures featured on this album are especially noteworthy. The first is the picture for the "Telepathetic" and "Dizygotic" page (slide 8 here). That picture was taken at the new Yankee Stadium in May of 2009. The picture was taken at night without a flash and looks like an old-time ballgame, an aesthetic Daniel and Andrew were especially pleased with given their love of the sport. The second especially noteworthy picture was the one taken for the album cover. Unlike their previous works, the title of this album and the album cover came at the very end of the recording and production process. After the album name was chosen, Daniel took some double and triple exposure shots of the smokestacks off of Roosevelt Island in New York City (the main filming location of Through The Viewfinder). Once the pair saw the shot featured on the album cover, they didn't have to look any further. Since the theme of the album revolves around the evolution of technology (including the inevitable extinction of the human race at the automatic hands of machines - the beasts we created to make our lives easier, but instead just distance us further away from each other), the shot of the smokestacks spawning off of each other and "reproducing" was an absolute perfect fit for the cover.
