The Flaming Lips invite European Artist to take the Blood of Oklahoma City!
Kristian Von Hornsleth will be present on the 26th of October, at The Flaming Lips' FREAK NIGHT in OKC. He will be there to collect Wayne's DNA for the Deep Storage Project! You can donate your DNA too. Free art certificates for the first 100 participators will be signed and numbered by the artist. Come on over and give a blood drop and a few hairs, and give yourself a chance in the eternity.
The Flaming Lips are inviting are all the fans, on their way to the big Freak Night Concert, the opportunity to donate their DNA to the international Epic art project, created by Kristian.
On March 20th 2013, a 25ft star shaped monolith will be lowered to the deepest point of the ocean, in the Mariana Trench. Preserved inside this star, will be blood samples, hair and DNA from thousands of people, from all over the world. Above ground, identical monoliths will be placed on every continent, directing the way back to the Mariana Trench, and the seeds of 21st century DNA, stored in its bowls.
"It's 2001 a space odyssey, in reverse. Instead of monoliths left to alert God to our technological enlightenment, we are leaving ourselves inside monoliths, to chronicle our technological self-destruction. It also gives a later generation or species, the opportunity to bring us back, if they're foolish enough". Hornsleth 2012
