A chair? Or a futuristic robotic spider-egg about to pounce? Scary as hell. A nine from me.

Ha! the chair has a lot of personality. The shot seems casuaaccidental fine art.l, momentary--but the effect of it is...I don't know. I don't have the words.

The high key, symmetry, futuristic chair, all work perfectly. I am particularly fond of how the fluorescent lights turn into a hand drawn mess as the ceiling fades away. The shadow lines and red locks form a nice "blueprint" detail feel.

All in all a very solid shot. (any digital noise and distortion adds to the context.)
