IV: Switching Planets, Changing Ships
“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”
-Frank Herbert, Dune
"In the brand's fourth portrait series, Ply-Knits once again takes a highly conceptual approach to showcasing their latest collection. Drawing on the world of classic sci-fi, the photo series focuses less on the genre and more on the era's retro aesthetic. Yim borrows set props from Stanley Kubrick's grand sci-fi opus, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and makes use of some unused archival photos to create this uncanny valley film set where streamlined visions of tomorrow collide with the chic warmth of her knits."
