The way of the jellyfish is simplicity. We jellyfish aren't capable of double-talk and trickery. We are easy to read and easy to avoid if you're looking out.
Some creatures (and even more humans) are clever and can talk circles around you, perhaps insulting you right to your face, with you none the wiser. They can also manipulate you into doing things for them -- even acting against your own interests. In some places, this type of activity has almost become a way of life. This of course can become a detriment when your enemies figure out how to put it to use.
Jellyfish are direct and not clever in this way. We let our stingers do the talking. Sometimes though, we do wish we had the wit and wherewithall of the Signifying Monkey.

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.
