Kami Gami

Kami Gami is a short fashion film released on

SHOWstudio is an award-winning fashion website, founded and directed by Nick Knight, that has consistently pushed the boundaries of communicating fashion online.

Kami Gami is a hair story related and exploring the depths of culture and the human psyche. The many different layers of a single hair and its roots contain the information for thousands and even millions of years which can even be used to trace the evolution of biological organisms.

The story is a glimpse into the different layers under the microsope of individual interpretations to those layers. We have created and explored 5 layers and 5 stories each of which will take you into the individuals mediation on the power, creation, birth and death represented by the symbololic and very real object which is HAIR.

This was another last minute assignment. Michael called me for strange discomforting music for the first part of a project he had to deliver like literally the next day or something. I've had this song on the shelves for some time with a very strange abstract quality to it that needed a perpose, and I thought this would be it.

So I sent it and it opened the film.
