Original price in Pounds 400mm x 640mm In a book called ‘Brought to Light’ by Alan Moore and Bill Sienkiewicz the numbers of people killed by CIA-sponsored state terrorism is measured in swimming pools. The average human body holds a gallon of blood. An Olympic swimming pool holds fifty gallons. The pools mount up through the book’s narrative, reaching a number I no longer wish to recall. This image haunted me throughout Radiohead’s ‘Kid A’ project, and here I’ve coupled it with a scary bear; the record’s iconic image, and a symbol of looming danger and shattered expectations.
