Client: Kult (Singapore)

I chose Collapse, by Jared Diamond (the author of Guns,Germs, and Steel) as the book I would create art for for Kult's literary collection. Collapse is about the collapse of great civilizations like the Mayans, Easter Islanders, etc… there are something like 7 factors that seem to cause the downfall of societies. One that seemed to be uniform throughout was that societies would cut down their trees, the soil would blow away etc... and then they were f’d. One sentence that really resonated with me was: “What did the Easter Islander who cut down the last palm tree say while he was doing it?”. It’s haunting and sad we are on the same path.

Professor Bhagirath Majmudar reflects on his 44 years teaching at The Emory School of Medicine.  Here is the excerpt from the story that grabbed my visual bone, “How vacant the night will look, if only moon was allowed to shine, and not the million stars,” said the Nobel Laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore. I am happy to have seen innumerable such stars at Emory, and they have guided me like stars always do. As men and women, they were mortals in themselves but secured the immortality of our institution. Dislodged stars do not leave an empty sky behind.”

Fred Thomas was Jame's Brown's Bassist for 30 years.  The saxaphonist Kiki is from Japan, it's not everyday you see a little Japanese girl funkin' on stage like this.  They took out all the seating because they know when this guy plays the 50 yr old crowd comes and moves their body in ways that freak me out like how the muppets unnatural movements freak me out.
