Have You Met...? Monday (#7): Zoetica Ebb
One of my favorite parts of the internet is the net part. The network. The connectedness of the seemingly disparate and the otherwise disassociated, all jumbled together. It was many years back, when I first started following along the blog of Warren Ellis that I stumbled across the Cosmonomad herself, artist and visionary Zoetica Ebb. I thought two things: one, who the crap is this? And two, what the hell is a Cosmonomad?
I'll be blunt: you've never met anyone like her. Hell, I've never met anyone like her - in fact, I haven't even met her. But she's worth the watch - in addition to her artistically non-linear approach to everything (including art), she's been an early adopter on many of the technological bells and whistles we have taken for granted. Take the case of her Kickstarter D4RT, where she raised $8000 so she could fly down to Peru and teach children about art. Yes. Seriously.
And also seriously, if that was the only thing she'd ever done, I'd still think she was awesome. But like Don Pardo says, that's not all.
The Secret Guide to Alternative Beijing; Coilhouse; fashion gigs like Persephone and GHST RDR, and her current project, Alien Botany. And that is the tip of her iceberg. Also, she has pretty ridiculously awesome hair. Seriously, any world from which a thoroughly incredible artist like Zoetica can emerge is a pretty astonishing place to live. Go and see for yourself.
