It's a beautiful day on the beach. The sun is shining, the water is peaceful. Time for a swim. The water caresses your skin as you glide through the currents.
Something grazes your foot, perhaps some seaweed. Suddenly, a pain shoots up your leg like a fire in a wall cavity. A bullet of venom is shot from a translucent organic pistol straight up into the sole of your foot.
You desperately rub and scratch the injection site, but it just makes it worse. Your heart is pumping a million gallons a minute. The vein on your forehead will burst from the pressure. The pain comes in waves like the ocean that betrayed you. It washes over you, melting your being and sucking you away like grains of sand in the tide leaving little of you behind but the pain. It's useless to cry or make any sound. There is no relief.
The jellyfish is brainless and plays no favorites. We are only reminding you to be careful. We are reminding you of the randomness of the universe. The nematocyst plays the tune this week, and the cycle of calm and storm is reflected in this jarring reminder from Bro Safari & UFO!.

About the Curator - AK Rockefeller
AK Rockefeller is the avatar-in-chief of Identity Transduction Systems (ITS). AK leads the ITS team of artists, musicians and activists who produce multimedia art & propaganda for important human rights causes. AK is the youngest son of Michael Rockefeller who went missing off the coast of West Papua in 1961. Much like most other public figures and celebrities, AK exists in realm between reality and fiction. His identity represents an challenge to the nature and concept of the 'public persona' in today's reality.
The activities of AK Rockefeller and ITS constitute an ongoing psychological operation against the warmongering capitalist status quo. By taking the Rockefeller name and manipulating the symbols of power, AK creates a real fictional alternative to the fake populist movements of today quietly serving the interests of existing elites.
