Emek is releasing his poster for the the final dates of the Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden tour for the Portland and Seattle shows on August 29 & 30th.
The poster is a 22 x 34 inch silk screen and Emek has titled it "Head like a Black Hole Sun"
Here is what Emek had to say on the design:
Midnight notes from on the spectrum
People ask me how I come up with my ideas?
Most of them come to me in my dreams like this piece did...
Right before I went to sleep I was listening to some old nine inch nails and old Soundgarden...
Then I woke up in the middle of the night with these thoughts and vision.
Sartre said hell is other people Yet we are alone. Dante said there were nine concentric planes of hell:
9×4 = 36 skeletons pictured... 36 is 3&6 is 9...nine inch nails
I wanted to draw something representing coming to peace with pieces of our own inner demons, thoughts and mortality.
Monumental yet Futile
Babel's Tower of contemplative ghosts
Elevated into the ether
Like so many lost thoughts
Hermetically sealed into memories
from future dreams now lost
Plumbing circuitry parasiting on the remains of a mind palace
