The human spine, a vertical mineral structure, seamlessly ascended into the heavens via rope systems in greek drama around 4 B.C. The lowest chord, the sound of geomagnetism, turns feet into roots. The combination of visual height and audio depth evokes an extended sensory spectrum of vertical embodiment. The title, being a phonetic interpretation of the word fundamental like all inscriptions on the 6 t-shirts, refers to the hero archetype Jean-Claude Van Damme who personifies a bridge between ballet and karate.
