Stadiums & Shrines


Swaths of cloth pinwheel in the passat. Evergreen strobic void in the streets of Munich.

“Don’t get too close!” the crowd shouts.

“That window’s open!”

“Look, look! They’re barely on!”

This jagged game… a rifted plane… how they brighten at dropping prospects, to dance and dare. A centimeter spin from disintegration, or perhaps a chance encounter with the Great Landscaper, forever rolling over those hills.

One tangles with another…

“Oooo… Oh my….” erupts from the terrace.

An unbalanced reach—a miss gasp.

Forever pinwheeling in the passat.

Dreams is an ongoing project where we ask our favorite artists to create a piece of music inspired by a handmade collage.
