Come…but not as you are

To gain beautiful or valuable memories you should be surprised or bewildered once in a while. Sometimes things should not come the way you think they are or expect them to be. Seeing Flying Lotus at the Lowlands festival in 2010 was one of those moments. I remember the first 10 minutes, they were awkward, strange…I actually briefly considered going. I didn´t, I stayed and I was amazed the rest of his performance. Nothing came as expected. 5 months later me and my wife traveled through New-Zealand for about three weeks. NZ is one of the most fascinating countries you can travel to, but I never imagined these two Islands surprising me over and over again…every single second of our road trip. The smell, the nature, the solitude, the light, the nights…it just never stopped. The Bow, a conceptual visual artist from NZ, produced this great video Phantasm for the Flying Lotus track “Phantasm” (Until the quiet comes). It was filmed on Desert Rd., the north Island of New-Zealand. This video captures all of that. It´s peculiar, kind of strange…just beautiful.
