Portent Painting Sequence 1 - Jared Pappas-Kelley

Updated: 6 days ago

"The plume rises heavily and abrupt, miles into the sky, bellows outward, erupting more black than grey with lightning strikes, and sifts to the ground in drifts, clogging everything it comes in contact with. It is dark, smothering and falls like aggressively silent snow as the cataclysm unfolds."

Today is the first sequence in the ongoing Portent project - one part shipping forecast/oracle/number station in format, another part enigmatic image and sound composition by the artist Jared Pappas-Kelley. https://www.invertextant.com/portents
