I woke from a deep sleep on a long haul flight and looked out the window onto a crazy beautiful sunset, it was one of those times on a plane when all is still and dark, everyone asleep and then you open the shutter a touch and BOOM straight to the brain. That line from Bladerunner came to mind… you know when Rutger Hauer goes on about attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion and c-beams glittering in the dark and all that. It took me back to a rave somewhere south of England early nineties, you know when you wanna call your mum and tell her you can never come home again coz things are never ever gonna be the same again, I’d necked three purple microdots and amongst other things over the course of a long night, hid from the Viet Cong up trees in deep jungle and watched monolithic skyscrapers grow up to the stars before collapsing in on themselves turning the world inside out in a psychedelic demolition day bathed in a red and orange apocalyptic twilight. Life changer. Deep breath.

Anyway this pictures about that.
