Something that not many people know about me: Until I was in my late teens, I considered joined the military, as was my initial plan in life. I was going to join up, become an officer with combat experience, and then move on to join the FBI or CIA.
Since then, lots of things in my life gave a hand in turning towards art instead of war. I am pretty glad for every moment of time I have not spent sweating somewhere under suppressing fire somewhere in a third world hellhole. But in my travels and corporate event design and touring, I have met some great people who have and are in those places doing what they do for our freedom.
Sometimes it’s amazing to see art done by people who have seen that side of humanity. Check this out — a video called Confusion Through Sand, done completely on recycled paper, and this is an amazing piece of work. It is going to be heavily emotional for those of you out there who have had time being shot at in the deserts of the globe. The audio is… well, it is unreal. Unreal.
I recommend watching this one too… the Making Of…
