This jellyfish is on the move today. The vast mountains of coral streak past. Schools of fish go about their business on either side. Cucumbers and anenome wave hello from the ocean floor. A lone squid pauses his hunt for a moment to clock you with his enormous eyes. You pick up speed, and all the ocean's denizens start to blur together.
Travel is an opportunity for a jellyfish to take stock as all things in their place and time appear and disappear as islands along your path. Big things become small and stationary as you move through them. They are no less beautiful or infinite, but you gain perspective when there are so many other mountains besides your own.
Music can provide similar perspective as you wander through other lives and see the moving shadows of another's spirit in each song you hear. Enjoy the perspective of this beautiful jazz classic by Gabor Szabo this week.

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.
