From the show notes: Rock on!!! Just as the Greeks inscribed heroes and mythologies on their pottery, in this project we document the adventures of our own culture’s demigods – Actors, Politicians, Athletes, and perhaps most satisfying of all, ROCKSTARS, who seem to roam the earth for our amusement and edification. Their agonies and ecstasies echo our own tendency to bounce between transcendent oneness and relentless self-destruction. This series of twelve lekythoi (Greek olive oil containers) tries to reconcile the same core issues humans have struggled with since the time of the Greeks and well before. Sex, Excess, and Death play lead roles in this lighthearted retelling of some of Rock’s (and Rap, Punk, Jazz, and Techno’s) most amazing myths and legends.
