|For the current cover (2004-present), JAD editors chose Casey Reas, an artist and educator exploring abstract kinetic systems through diverse digital media including software, animation, and digital prints (see more of his work at http://www.groupc.net). Casey's cover for JAD was generated from software written specifically for the journal. It generates thousands of flower-like images and from these many variations, Casey selected the cover image. The chosen form and color are a reference to the magnolia flower of Darryl Evan’s cover illustration (1999-2003) of Hippocrates, where the flying pieces of the Alzheimer's puzzle and steel magnolia symbolize the one out of the sixteen Americans who stand behind each Alzheimer's victim. And so with this motif, the two covers, past and present, link and illustrate the continuance in JAD's mission to deliver top-quality science.|
